Boris Godunov tells the chilling story of a tsar’s ruthless ambition and downfall - he has murdered the nine-year-old heir to the throne in order to be crowned emperor himself, but is so haunted by the apparent spectre of his victim (actually a monk in disguise) and threatened by the popular support for this Young Pretender, that he dies of guilt and shame.
