Nicholas Roerich - Sceneries to the opera “Prince Igor” by A.Borodin
"Prince Igor" is the famous opera based on medieval Russian epic "The Lay of Igor’s Host". The epic tells a tragic story of the campaign of Prince Igor Svyatoslavich against Cuman tribes in 1185.
I think we should post more about “The Lay of Igor’s Host”. That’s very important in Russian culture story, same as “The Song of Roland” in the French culture or “The Ring of the Nibelung” in the German.
