Set at the start of the 17th century, the story concerns the reign of Tsar Boris Godunov, who has murdered the Tsarevich Dmitri in order to obtain the succession, and the challenge made to him by the Pretender Dmitri. The opera is based on Pushkin's historical tragedy of the same name with additional material partially derived from historical works by Nikolai Karamzin.
