‘Born in Russia, his most famous opera is …’ The problem stems from the fact that the first part of the sentence (the subordinate clause ‘born in Russia’) doesn’t have an explicit subject, although from the context you’d expect it to be a person. The next words you see (‘his most famous opera’) are the subject of the sentence, but they clearly don’t match the preceding clause, because an opera cannot be born (unless one was writing figuratively). This sort of clause/sentence is unattached, misrelated or simply: dangling.
