PRESS RELEASE. PREMIERE "DIE NASE" on 24 October 2021
"Every man a king" is the theme of this season. In Dmitri Shostakovich's Die Nase (Nos), the first premiere of the 2021-22 season, however, it is questionable to whom the crown ultimately belongs - Kovaljov or his nose? The work itself is a grotesque nightmare about fear of loss and paranoia, about dehumanized physiognomies and falling out of the norm. And what if the nose as a sign for greatness of character were only glued on?
Dmitri Shostakovich's Die Nase (Nos) will premiere on Sunday, 24 October 2021, 7 pm (CEST). Under the musical direction of General Music Director Vladimir Jurowski and staged by Kirill Serebrennikov, Boris Pinkhasovich stars as Kovaljov Platon Kusmič in the co-production with Novaya Opera Moskow. Other roles include Anton Rositskiy (The Nose), Laura Aikin (Praskovja Osipovna) and Laura Aikin (Praskovja Osipovna) und Doris Soffel (Old Lady).
The premiere will be live on the radio on BR-KLASSIK.
The performance on 27 October 2021 will be broadcast live on STAATSOPER.TV.
