A story of art, love, madness and freedom!

“Shostakovich and The Black Monk: A Russian Fantasy” comes from the minds of acclaimed theatrical director, James Glossman, and Emerson String Quartet member, Philip Setzer.

In a bold intersection of chamber music and theater witness the trials and challenges of Shostakovich’s obsessive quest to create an opera based on Anton Chekov’s mystical tale: The Black Monk.

The Emerson String Quartet and the cast of actors tell this story through the eyes of Shostakovich himself. The tragedy that unfolds reveals that with the stoke of a pen, the Soviet regime undermined the career of one of the most prominent composers of the 20th century, Dmitri Shostakovich.

The cast is subject to change.
