Photo Flash: William Kentridge's Production Of Shostakovich's THE NOSE with Tony Winner Paulo Szot Hits Theatres 10/26
Check out photos below from THE MET: LIVE IN HD's production of THE NOSE by Dmitri Shostakovich, hosted by Patricia Racette.
William Kentridge's dazzlingly innovative production of Shostakovich's shocking, unconventional opera about a beleaguered Russian official and his runaway nose will be transmitted live for the first time on Saturday, October 26 at 12:55pm ET. Critically acclaimed and sold-out at the Met in 2010, The Nose stars Tony Award-winner (South Pacific) Paulo Szot as Kovalyov, a hapless bureaucrat who awakes one morning to discover that his nose has run away. Andrey Popov is the menacing Police Inspector and Alexander Lewis makes his company role debut as Kovalyov's peripatetic nose. Pavel Smelkov conducts.
(Running time: approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes, no intermission)
