Prokofiev's overpowering score for large orchestra, chorus, and mezzo-soprano soloist is accompanied by Sergei Eisenstein's cinematic masterpiece. Sergei Eisenstein filmed this black-and-white masterpiece under the watchful eye of Stalin's reign. It portrays a proud event in Russian history: Nevsky's 13th-century victory over an invading army of Teutonic Crusaders.
