Shostakovich’s epic 5th Symphony. 1937 Russia—during the height of the Stalinist purges. The Communist Party denounces Dmitri Shostakovich’s most recent works. Fearing for his life, the young composer writes a “Soviet” symphony, ending with a rousing march. But to many, the triumph rang hollow. Was the symphony meant to celebrate Stalin’s regime? Or did it contain hidden messages protesting the very system it seemed to support? Get Tickets by calling 605-394-1786 or online at bhsymphony.org.
