William Kentridge’s dazzlingly innovative production of Shostakovich’s shocking, unconventional opera about a beleaguered Russian official and his runaway nose stars Tony Award winner (South Pacific) Paulo Szot as Kovalyov, a hapless bureaucrat who awakes one morning to discover that his nose has run away. Andrey Popov is the menacing Police Inspector and Alexander Lewis makes his company role debut as Kovalyov’s peripatetic nose. Pavel Smelkov conducts. GREAT PERFORMANCES AT THE MET: The Nose airs Sunday, April 6 at 1 p.m. on WXXI-TV.
