This album from PentaTone Classics is an excellent "highlight reel" of Russian opera hits of the Romantic era. This volume features the works of Mussorgsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, and Tchaikovsky. Snippets of Mussorgsky's Khovanschina and Borid Godunov, a portion of Rimsky-Korsakov's Legend of the invisable city of Kitezh and the second act of Sadko, and a part of Tchaikovsky's opera derived from classic Russian literature Eugene Onegin.
