WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Artist William Kentridge defies genres with Shostakovich's adaptation of Gogol's story. "The opera is about the terrors of hierarchy," Kentridge says. "There's a mixture of anarchy and the absurd that interests me. I love in this opera the sense that anything is possible." The new production is conducted by definitive Shostakovich interpreter Valery Gergiev. Acclaimed baritone Paulo Szot, who won a Tony Award® for South Pacific, makes his Met debut as the man who wakes up to discover that his nose has disappeared.
