Label Text:
The Palace of the Facets (Granovitaia Palata), in the Kremlin. A session of the Duma is in progress. The boyars are discussing what punishment should be meted out to the Pretender should he be caught.

In the Palace of the Facets a session of the boyars’ council is in progress. The assembled boyars discuss means of halting the pretender. Shuiskii enters and tells them about Boris’s hallucination; Boris makes his entrance soon after. The monk Pimen also appears, telling the story of the wonder-working murdered tsarevich Dmitrii. In the next scene Boris calls for his son and dies.
