Nicholas Roerich first worked on Alexander Borodin’s Prince Igor in 1909, when Sergei Diaghilev included excerpts from the opera in his first Saison Russe in Paris. Diaghilev took a full performance of the opera to London in 1914. He again invited Roerich to design the sets and costumes. Chaliapin sang the part of Khan Konchak and the opera enjoyed great success with the British public. Roerich, however, was unable to attend the premiere.
