Marking the 125th Anniversary of his birth, Prokofiev's Semyon Kotko is given an outstanding performance here by a fine cast, conducted by Valery Gergiev, who is widely regarded as one of the Prokofiev's greatest interpreters.

Set during 1918, in a Post-Bolshevik-Revolution climate, Semyon Kotko is a story of love, war and resistance although lesser-known than Prokofiev's other operas, such as War and Peace and Betrothal in a Monastery, Semyon Kotko is nevertheless a raw, thrilling, and utterly engrossing work.
