On “The Nose”

by Suzanne Calvin

The Metropolitan Opera production of Dmitri Shostakovich’s bitter satire, “The Nose,” based on a 19th-century short story by Gogol, is of special interest to Dallas Opera patrons because the starring role is being performed by baritone Paulo Szot…the same Tony Award winner who will sing the title role in next fall’s season opener, “Don Giovanni.”  Classical Music Critic Anthony Tommasini of “The New York Times” had this review of the production and Szot’s intelligent portrayal of “this daunting Russian role.”  Scott Cantrell of “The Dallas Morning News” found that the entire exercise started getting on his nerves.  Read more about that…here.
