Description The opera Boris Goudenow (1710) by the German composer and theorist Johann Mattheson is one of the many Pseudo-Demetrius works of European literary and musical history, i.e. works depicting the events of Russian history that brought Pseudo-Demetrius I, to the throne. Although most of them were written in the 19th century, the first dramatic works featuring Boris and Pseudo-Demetrius I appeared several years after the death of both rulers. A comparison of these works written around the end of the Baroque period and a comparison of the descriptions of the two tsars in them then shows the rather important role of the prevailing religion of the author's homeland and its connection with the sources used by the writers. Libretto of Boris Goudenow, which Mattheson wrote himself, is no exception.
