The Story

Shostakovich’s absurdist masterpiece makes its long anticipated Chicago debut in a new production by legendary director Francesca Zambello. Kovalyov wakes up one morning to discover his nose has not only taken on a life of its own, but is a high-ranking government official. Kovalyov chases his nose around the streets of St. Petersburg in a hilarious series of events, encountering many quirky characters along the way. With an electrifying avant-garde score by legendary Russian composer Dmitiri Shostakovich, it is sure to appeal to your scents of humor.
