His opera, The Nose, has been on in London recently and was broadcast on the radio a week or two ago, so I have downloaded that off the BBC radio app and plan to hear it next week. Daughter's boyfriend is a keen opera buff. I wonder if he was tempted to take Daughter to see The Nose?

Julian Barnes "The Noise of Time" and Shostakovich's "The Nose"
I have just re-read Julian Barnes's book about Shostakovich and have enjoyed it just at much the second time through. I have a collection of S's symphonies and have been listening to one ever day or two.
