About the performance

The premiere of the only operetta by Dmitri Shostakovich Moscow, Cheryomushki took place at the Moscow Operetta Theatre on the 24th of January 1959. Soon after, productions followed in Rostov-on-Don, Odessa, Sverdlovsk, Bratislava, Prague, Magadan, Zagreb, various cities in the GDR and Czechoslovakia. Two years later a film, based on the operetta, Cheryomushki was made (directed by Herbert Rappaport).

The return of the composer to the musical theatre after the “anti-formalistic campaign” of the 1930s, as well as his debut in the “light” genre was much looked forward to. One of the founders and a leading artist of the Moscow Operetta Theatre, Grigory Yaron wrote in his book of memories: “An announcement that Shostakovich is writing an operetta was met with huge interest. How? A composer who wrote Symphony No. 7, and recently — No. 11, suddenly composes an operetta?!! Wherever I appeared, the first question I heard from people I knew or who I did not know, of different ages and professions, was: “What is Shostakovich’s operetta like?”. The composer responded to the topic of his “sensational” referral to the genre of operetta: “I think that a true composer must try his hand in every genre”.

Premiered on March 25, 2021.

Presented with one interval.

Libretto by Vladimir Mass and Mikhail Chervinsky

Boris Koretsky and Sergey Glushkov enter the hall. Boris opens to his friend: he wants to find love.
