Tanglewood

Artist & Program Information

Emerson Quartet
James Glossman, writer and director
David Strathairn, actor
Jay O. Sanders, actor


The Emerson String Quartet, accompanied by an ensemble of seven actors, weaves the tale of Dmitri Shostakovich's 50-year obsessive quest to create an opera from The Black Monk, Chekhov's theatrical chamber masterpiece about love, art, madness, and freedom.  Through music-including a complete performance of Shostakovich's String Quartet No. 14-supported by actors and multimedia projections, we see Shostakovich himself trying over decades to retell Chekhov's haunting and heroic story of a writer struggling for his sanity, only to be sidetracked again and again by the composer's own struggle to survive as an artist amid the ever-changing imperatives of Stalin's Soviet state.
