Royal Opera House | THE NOSE - Insight Barrie Kosky

“Shostakovich makes a director’s life a fabulous nightmare”, says Barrie Kosky. The Australian stage director makes his debut at London’s Royal Opera House with THE NOSE.

 

No repertoire piece, no star-stunned cast, and a piece that Royal Opera had never done before – these were Barrie Kosky’s three conditions to agree in directing an opera at the Royal Opera House London. In Shostakovich’s operatic satire THE NOSE Kosky found the right opera for his London debut.

In this very entertaining interview, Kosky describes how he approached the opera and gives a glimpse at how to stage a show about a man who, has, simply, lost his nose.
