THE CONDUCTOR
"A gripping testament to the life-saving power of music"

THE CONDUCTOR
A stage play featuring the music of Shostakovich

The threat of fascism creeps ever closer. What use is art in the face of all this? From the devastation of the Leningrad Blockade, 1941, came one of the most life-affirming pieces of music ever to be composed. Shostakovich's 7th Symphony lifted an entire city in its darkest hour, instilling renewed faith in our capabilities as individuals, as well as the unifying spirit of a people as one. The Conductor is a concert-play: a story told, and woven within the music of the symphony itself.
