Bickerton Village Hall


“The Conductor”

With the support of Cheshire Rural Touring Arts, Bickerton Village Hall is thrilled to present the play ‘The Conductor’ featuring the music of Shostakovich and Symphony Number 7 in C Major.    In 1941, German troops surrounded Leningrad for more than 2 years and the battle claimed the lives of more than 1 million people.  In the midst of this devastation, Shostakovich worked tirelessly to complete his 7th Symphony – ‘Symphony for the People’  The Symphony was played across the front lines of the Russian Resistance and it is claimed lifted an entire city in its darkest hour.   ‘The Conductor’ is the story of how Shostakovich and Karl Eliasberg of the Radio Orchestra of Leningrad brought music to the people who needed it most.  A powerful and wonderful performance.  Tickets are £10pp from 01829 720440
