Hansel and Gretel - Act I

Alexander Borodin is generally regarded as the first Russian composer whose music gained great popularity outside of his native land. His opera "PRINCE IGOR" is world famous for the rousing Polovitsian dances. Another moment in the opera equally rich in melody, takes place in the third act. Prince Igor has been taken captive. As dawn approaches he wanders thru the camp and expresses his shame and worry for his family. He asks God to grant him freedom to redeem his honor and that of his country.
