100 years ago, visionaries overturned a society
100 years ago, bullies duped the masses

Bolshevik Cabaret


Music theater, dance, and opera by Soviet composers in observance of the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution. (And yes, the October Revolution actually occurred November 7-8.) Program includes scenes from the suprematist opera Victory Over the Sun and Dimitri Shostakovich’s underground opera Rayok, in addition to stagings of declamations, and instrumental, vocal, and choral music from this extremely fertile period of Soviet artistic creativity.
