It's 1941, troops surround the city of Leningrad, in what will come to be known as the Leningrad Blockade, a siege of more than 2 years, and one that will claim more than 1,000,000 lives. In the midst of this devastation, composer Dmitri Shostakovich works tirelessly to complete his 7th Symphony, a symphony for the people. It goes on to be played across the front lines of the resistance, and today serves as the sound that lifted a city in its darkest hour.
"The Conductor", based on the novel by Sarah Quigley and adapted by Mark Wallington, will be touring on and off until June 2018. Stops will include the Gothenburg Fringe, Theatre Chipping Norton, and La Comédie de Clermont-Ferrand in France.
Featuring the music of Dmitri Shostakovich, arranged and Performed by Daniel Wallington, this is one show you will not want to miss.
