Festival Details - "(Canceled) Andris Nelsons conducts Shostakovich's Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk featuring Kristine Opolais and the Tanglewood Festival Chorus"...
Start: Tuesday, April 6, 2021 7:30PM End: TBD
The most ambitious single endeavor in the BSO and Andris Nelsons’s multi-year Shostakovich survey, the opera Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk was also an immense undertaking for its twenty-four-year-old composer. Celebrated soprano Kristine Opolais sings the leading role in this dark portrayal of Katarina Izmailova, the oppressed, ambitious, and ultimately murderous wife of a provincial merchant. Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk became a worldwide sensation following its 1934 premiere, but it also led to the first major crisis between Shostakovich and Joseph Stalin’s oppressive regime. Concert performances, sung in Russian with English supertitles
