    Opus No. 7

    (Russia)

    Dmitry Krymov Lab

    Dmitry Krymov is one of Russia’s most influential theatre directors, the creator of visually majestic, moving yet witty experiences.

    Opus No.7 placed its audience on the stage, tantalisingly close to the action of a genre-defying double bill. The oppression of Soviet Jews and the censorship of Shostakovich under Stalin were depicted through larger-than-life puppets, duelling pianos, living walls and blizzards of newsprint; epic images conjured up from the simplest of materials.

     


    An absolute must-see, authentic theatrical experience
