Ivan The Terrible: The Oprichniki scene.

Recommended Posts

I know the music for the Ballet was compiled from various Prokofiev pieces. Does anyone know which piece the “whipping scene” came from?

Deflope, I looked in my programme, and the following pieces are listed - music by Sergei Prokofiev (fragments from the film score for Ivan the Terrible, fragments from The Russian Overture, fragments from the cantata Alexander Nevsky, a fragment from the third symphony) musical version and additions by Mikhail Chulaki.  Do not know which of those is in the Oprichniki scene though, except I think not the cantata.

It comes from the original Prokofiev score for the movie Ivan the Terrible. You can find it in the recordings of the oratorio, it is a piece called "The Oath of the Oprichniks" sang by a choir.
