I have seen this opera twice before; the first production was awful and the second was via DVD.
Kentridge's production is absolutely terrific. It honors Shostakovich's intent as a young composer; he is breaking into modernist thinking and represents Meyerhold's collage technique with aplumb!

See this in person or via the summer repeats!
