Great opera by a 20th century genius

It seems either I was seeing double when I first wrote my review or the image has been changed. Buy the opera for the content. Be aware that there is a revision made by Shostakovich in which he changed the title and added some material. The 1962 title is “Katerina Izmailova”, the original dates from 1934. The original, Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk of course has nothing to do with Shakespeare. The opera was sharply criticized by the Communist party and was banned for 30 years.
