Renaissance Theatre Presents: Seventh Symphony, May 29

 

Date: May 29, 2016Seventh Symphony

Time: 2:30 pm

The latest play by Robert Riddle Baker, 7th Symphony, sets the composition of Shostakovich’s most famous work against the tragic canvas of the siege itself and the years of repression and terror that preceded it. In vivid and compelling detail he tells the story of the cruelties heaped by the twin monsters of the twentieth century on a city of exquisite beauty and fine minds, and of its no less remarkable survival. Weaving the story of one orchestra member preparing for the symphony along with his friends, three other artists, into the context of the maelstrom of Stalin’s purges and the brutal Nazi invasion of Russia; 7th Symphony is a magical and moving account of one of the most tragic periods in history.

Shows are upstairs on RT’s MainStage and will begin May 27-28 & June 2-4 at 7:00 pm with matinee’s on May 29 & June 5 at 2:30 pm. Tickets are $18 per person. Visit us online for tickets by clicking the Ticket Links or by calling 256.536.3117.
