‘The Nose’ Opera Screening

Fri 17 June at 6:00 pm - 8:15 pm


Join us in the Gallery Theatre for a free screening of the visually dazzling Metropolitan Opera production of ‘The Nose’

A wildly inventive production of Shostakovich’s satirical opera, adapted from the classic short story by Nikolai Gogol and designed and directed by acclaimed artist William Kentridge.

Baritone Paulo Szot leads the cast as Kovalyov, the hapless bureaucrat whose nose has mysteriously gone missing. Alexander Lewis and Andrey Popov co-star, and Pavel Smelkov conducts.

Free. Tickets Limited. Bookings Essential. FIND TICKETS HERE.

William Kentridge: I am not me, the horse is not mine is now showing at Orange Regional Gallery and continuing until 26 June 2022. This powerful eight channel video installation was created in preparation for the 2010 production of Shostakovich’s opera The Nose for the Metropolitan Opera, New York.

William Kentridge: I am not me, the horse is not mine is an Art Gallery of New South Wales Touring Exhibition.
