There are 3  performances left of this dazzlingly whacky absurdist opera by Shostakovich, brilliantly produced by William Kentridge.  This is a live screening of the opera (in the Met’s HD series) which has returned to the New York Met after premiering in 2010.

Based on the 1836 short story writtten by Nikolai Gogal,  it tells the story of a small time Russian official who loses his nose which then develops a life of its own.

 

 

A visual feast of collage, shadow projection and animation, all set to Shostakovich’s avant-garde score, this is a must see .

There are 3 performances left at Cinema Nouveau Rosbank Mall on Tuesday 10th at 17.00; Wednesday 11th at 11.30 and Thursday 12th at 17.30.
