Lady Macbeth del distretto di Mzensk : opera in quattro atti by Dmitriĭ Dmitrievich Shostakovich( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in Russian and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At first glance, the title of Shostakovich's opera seems to speak for itself: Katherina, neglected and unhappy in her marriage, commits the most heinous crime just like the Shakespearian Lady Macbeth. But Nikolai Leskovss short novel, which portrays Katherina as a monster, was only the starting point for Shostakovich to elicit understanding for an oppressed woman whose pursuit for self-determination is suppressed by society. Through combining satiric, grotesque and tragic elements in his music, Shostakovich succeeds in striking the balance between repulsion at Katherina's immoral acts and sympathy for her. Violence, eroticism and the paralysing boredom of Russian society in the 19th century are the founding elements of this composition."--Www.arthaus-musik.com (viewed on Feb. 9, 2010)
