Dmitri Shostakovich

Dmitri Shostakovich

(1906–1975)

 

 

Shostakovich's most famous opera, "Lady Macbeth of Minsk" is a violent love story set in provincial Russia.

It scandalised the Soviet authorities at the time of its premier and he later produced a censored version, Katerina Ismailova.

The original now stands as one of the most performed operatic works of the 20th century.
