Dmitri Schostakowitsch

Moscow, Cheryomushki

Is there any place more idyllic than a high-rise quarter, freshly built? Locked doors, corrupt civil servants, homelessness hovering like the sword of Damocles over the heads of a random group of Muscovites from the overcrowded and ailing parts of the Russian metropolis in the late 1950s. The satellite town of Cheryomushki is supposed to alleviate all these troubles, making all the promises of modern life come true. Whatever might still be lacking to achieve perfect happiness is supplied by a homemade magical garden: here, flowers grow only for good people, a fountain makes civil servants mute, a park bench silences all lies and a fabulous clock turns the hands of time until love finally comes true. Welcome to the wonderful world of “Soviet operetta”!
