Returning Soon To Pushkin Hall!
TWO ENCORE PERFORMANCES: NOV 17th & NOV 18th at 8PM
“Poetry is respected only in this country — people are killed for it. There's no place where more people are killed for it."
During Stalin's stormy and restless reign, writers faced intense censorship and scrutiny. As their lives turned impossibly difficult under tyranny, the poet and composer became in return a figure of power and popularity. Remarkably, novelists, poets and musicians from the early decades of the Soviet Union produced some of the most imaginative and redemptive works in the history of the twentieth century. This October, join The Russian Arts Theater & Studio for an evening of poetry and live music at Pushkin Hall as we commemorate the works of Anna Akhmatova, Osip Mandelstam, Mikhail Bulgakov, Dmitry Shostakovich, Boris Pasternak and more. Performed in English and Russian.
Directed by Aleksey Burago
