Moscow, Cheryomushki (Russian: Москва, Черёмушки; Moskva, Cheryómushki) is an operetta in three acts by Dmitri Shostakovich, his Op. 105. It is sometimes referred to as simply Cheryomushki. Cheryomushki is a district in Moscow full of cheap subsidized housing built in 1956, and the word is also commonly used for such housing projects in general

Pimlico Oprea Presents a musical comedy by Shostakovich.

In Cheryomushki there is indignation over the sneaky caretaker Barabashkin, who claims that the building has not yet been inspected, which is why the flat keys cannot yet be handed out to the desperately waiting new tenants. Boris, Lidochka and her father finally have themselves lifted by a crane to the balcony of their flat. Now the new tenants try every possible way to get into their flats. Before each person can live happily within his own four walls, however, all kinds of adversities must be overcome

COMPOSER: Dmitry Shostakovich. PERFORMER: Hague Residentie Orchestra Russian State Symphonic Cappella. CONDUCTOR: Gennady Nikolayevich Rozhdestvensky. More from this artist.

Moscow, Cheryomushki. operetta in three acts (concert performance). Born in the USSR On-line broadcast. When the composer of the very recently premiered Eleventh Symphony (1905) agreed to the proposal to write a musical comedy he staggered many of his dedicated followers. They had forgotten the fact that Shostakovich loved and was able to make his laughter infectious through music – we can hear this in his most tragic symphonies and in his works for theatre, his operas, his ballets and his comet-like ballet and jazz suites. They had forgotten that Shostakovich was not ashamed of his love of easy listening – musicals, gypsy song and jazz.
