The Nose:
When Shostakovich released his debut opera into the world at the tender age of 20, his brilliance was plain as the nose on his face.
He used every musical trick in the book (and quite a few that weren’t) to tell this amusing tale: here a raucous percussion ensemble, here a maniacal gallop, there a lyrical chorus. This eclectic parade of styles put a few noses out of joint, but sniff as they might, not even the establishment could deny that here was a virtuoso at work.
The frenetic score springs entirely from the action on stage, as a lowly official chases his gallivanting nose around town. It’s a zany, hyperactive cabaret with more than 80 named parts (including the nose itself).
Who better to direct than the outrageously inventive Barrie Kosky, the Australian director of Berlin’s Komische Oper? Reviewers called this co-production with the Royal Opera House “terrifically realized, brilliantly inventive and highly entertaining” (The Spectator).
Andrea Molino conducts a massive cast including Martin Winkler, John Tomlinson and Alexander Lewis. They perform in English in a new translation by David Pountney.
