This prize-winning opera premiered in 2015 in Vienna. Composed by Pericles Liakakis, with a libretto by Kristina Tornquist, the plot deals with the convergence of two men, Vladimir Putin and Mikhail Chodorkowski. One is in government, the other in business. They find themselves at a point in Russian history when government and business are wrestling for power. Who’s right? Who has the might? —L.J.
