Performer Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This is a remarkable Soviet film version of Shostakovich's own re-working of his opera 'Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, featuring Russian soprano Galina Vishnevskaya in the role of Katerina. The first ever release on any format outside of Russia, this DVD also includes an excerpt from Shostakovich's satirical musical 'Cheryomushki' and an excerpt from the 'Shostakovich against Stalin' documentary DVD. "The power of the music and the performance of the peerless Galina Vishnevskaya, singing and playing the title role to the hilt... is extraordinary." -The New York Times
