‘Thrillingly inventive.’

‘This is [a] show, defiant in its attitude and playful spirit, about artistic imagination.’


A vivid, visceral experience.

One of the most influential voices of Russian theatre, Dmitry Krymov and his collaborators devise deeply moving, visually majestic experiences – conjuring up beguiling images of epic proportion from simple materials.

Enter a world of transformation, where objects, sounds and people change in the blink of an eye. Depicting the oppression of Soviet Jews and the censorship of Shostakovich under Stalin, Opus No. 7 uses larger-than-life puppets, duelling pianos, living walls and blizzards of newsprint to create a genre-defying double bill.
