Alert:

Please note that this course has started and enrolment is no longer possible.

This course will look at the controversial life of Sergey Prokofiev, the musician and composer of Peter and the Wolf and Romeo and Juliet. He left Russia at the time of the Revolution for a garlanded career as an émigré in New York, London and Paris but shocked the world by returning to Moscow in 1936. He was honoured by the Soviet authorities, fully enjoyed all privileges of top echelons of Soviet society and died on the same day as Stalin in 1953. The course will examine Prokofiev's life, work and legacy.
