­­­­­CRITIC'S PICK. An "unforgettable work and thrillingly invent­ive production." - The New York Times

FOUR STARS. "You do not see work as original or stirring as Krymov’s every season… OPUS NO. 7 is a starkly beautiful and terrifying performance-cum-art-project." -Time Out NEW YORK

"The first must-see show of the year. An extraordinary experience… You may never be sure what any given moment means, but you won’t soon forget 'Opus No. 7.'" - The New York Post

"Try [to go] if only to remind yourself what it is like to strive for something, to desire, to ache to breathe in s­omeone else’s space. Let this ensemble’s bold beauty remind you of your own. This is the power of art." -New York Theatre Review

“Breathtaking. A stunning mix of visual images… Astonishing in its theatrical originality.” The Moscow Times

“One of the most original directorial voices of this new century.”
American Theatre

­­ ­ ­­Viewphotos_3­­­­­­­­­­Known internationally for his inventiveness ­and ingenuity, Dmitry Krymov creates fantastic spectacles of­ operatic ­proportion with the simplest of materials­. Larger-th­an-life puppets, cacophonous dancing pianos, musicians who become actors, actors who become acrobats, and walls that erupt with imagery inhabit a stunning theatrical world that changes in the blink of an eye. One never knows what will happen next in Krymov’s Opus No. 7. Presented in two parts, Genealogy and Shostakovich, it’s about the legacy of oppression of Soviet Jews and artists under Stalin — by turns tender and delicate, comedic and sinister.  ­

Please note: Seating shifts for Act II to create a dynamic and unique in-the-round viewing experience. Some patrons' seats may change in order to maximize the audience's view of Act II.

On January 16th St. Ann's held a talkback between director Dmitry Krymov and Peter Schumann, founder and Artistic Director of Bread and Puppet Theater. It was moderated by St. Ann's Artistic Director Susan Feldman. CLICK HERE TO SEE THE CONVERSATION >>


There will be a special Russian-American exhibit in the St. Ann's lobby during the run of Opus No. 7. Ft. Ross is a former Russian establishment in what is now Sonoma County, California. It was the hub of the southernmost Russian settlements in North America and the exhibition showcases 200 years of rich cultural and natural history, highlighting the locale, structures, and biodiversity of the settlement. The historic settlement remains a symbol of Russian-American friendship, scientific exploration, and cross-cultural understanding.

The Fort Ross exhibit is made possible by the Renova Fort Ross Foundation, dedicated to promoting preservation and awareness of the Fort Ross State Historic Park in northern California.
