Vladimir Mayakovsky: poet, lover, revolutionary. Innovative Australian composer Michael Smetanin joins forces with award-winning writer and librettist Alison Croggon to tell the incendiary story of Stalin’s favourite poet.
Mayakovsky blends Russian Futurism with hypermodern electronica in a dizzying ride through the 20th century. Its epic canvas is populated by a parade of figures: lovers, apparatchiks, writers, radicals, and Uncle Joe Stalin himself. It begins with a voice from the future and ends in cataclysm. It is fierce, uncompromising, and strangely beautiful.
