Until Saturday

GRAD, Gallery for Russian Arts and Design 3-4a Little Portland Street London W1   
 

UNTIL Saturday 28 February - original designs, photographs and costumes for Dmitri Shostakovich’s 1931 ballet ‘The Bolt’ 


 










Quote from the Composer:
“I live in the USSR, work actively
and count naturally on the worker and peasant
spectator. If I am not comprehensible to them
I should be deported.”


Shostakovich in discussion with an opera
audience, January 14, 1930; cited from
