In the realm of Russian opera, Prince Igor by Alexander Borodin (1833-1887) stands as one of the most important historical operas, prominent in its use of choral writing. The exotic "Polovetsian Dances" (whose themes were made famous in America as the song "A Stranger in Paradise" in 1953 musical Kismet) are often performed as a stand-alone concert piece and are among the most frequentlyrequested editions of choral parts published by Musica Russica. A Diction Coaching CD is available for this title.
