The Royal Opera will present a concert performance of Musorgsky's Boris Godunov on 16 July as part of the BBC Proms 2016.

Following Richard Jones' acclaimed staging earlier this Season at the Royal Opera House, the performance at the Royal Albert Hall will star Welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel in the title role. Antonio Pappano will conduct.

Other operas performed as part of this year's programme include Glyndebourne's The Barber of Seville on 25 July and Mark Elder performing Semiramide with Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment on 4 September. Peruvian tenor Juan Diego Flórez will perform at the Last Night of the Proms on 10 September.

Tickets for Boris Godunov at the BBC Proms go on sale online on 7 May 2016. Prior to booking opening, bookers will need to complete a Proms plan via the Royal Albert Hall website.

    The BBC are not broadcasting Prom 2. Will the ROH be issuing a DVD at some point?

      Hi Jonathan,

      The BBC are broadcasting the Prom on Radio 3 but as you say not on television. In terms of the DVD, we hope to be able to make a release but can't confirm details yet – any news will be announced on these pages.

      All best,
      Rachel
