“See Opera Boston’s splendid production of Schostakovich’s comic opera… as in the literary original, the city of St.Petersburg and its residents are as much characters as the characters themselves. Pevzner acknowledges this with a hyperactive set and in-your-face blocking, creating a visual whirlwind that mimics the score and captures the comic energy of the composer’s intent.” (Keith Powers, BOSTON HERALD)
