Watch Sunday, June 22, 2014 at 1pm on WMHT TV.

This acclaimed new production of Alexander Borodin’s operatic masterpiece, the Met’s first since 1917, stars Ildar Abdrazakov as the heroic title character, a 12th-century ruler who defended Russia against invading Polovtsian forces. Gianandrea Noseda, a specialist in Russian music, conducts a new edition of the opera — left unfinished by Borodin at the time of his death in 1887 — which has been specially created for the Met production. The cast includes Ukrainian soprano Oksana Dyka as Igor’s wife, Yaroslavna; Anita Rachvelishvili as the fiery Polovtsian princess Konchakovna; Russian tenor Sergey Semishkur as Igor’s son, Vladimir Igorevich; Mikhail Petrenko as Yaroslavna’s brother, Prince Galitsky; and Štefan Kocán as Khan Konchak, leader of the Polovtsian forces. Bass-baritone Eric Owens hosts the broadcast.
