About: The Conductor

In 1941, troops surrounded the city of Leningrad, in what would come to be known as the Leningrad Blockade, a siege of more than 2 years, and one that would claim the lives of more than 1,000,000 men, women, and children.
In the midst of this devastation, composer Dmitri Shostakovich worked tirelessly to complete his 7th Symphony, a “symphony for the people.”
Based on the best-selling novel by Sarah Quigley, and adapted by Mark Wallington and Jared McNeill, ‘The Conductor’ tells the true story of a sound that lifted an entire city in its darkest hour, instilling renewed faith in our capabilities as individuals, as well as the dignity and power that art may serve.
Following international performances, Jared McNeill’s (Peter Brook’s international company) award-winning concert-play comes to the Space. Featuring the music of the “Leningrad Symphony” performed live, this is the true story of ordinary people and extraordinary deeds.


“a tremendous performance, full of energy and the music’s own emotion.”
Michael Quine, Buxton Fringe Review

Recipient of the Buxton Festival Fringe 2016 JOHN BEECHER AWARD

“The coveted John Beecher Award for original,
challenging work with high production values.”

Award for Highest Artistic Merits at the 2017 Roma Fringe Festival

"Rediscovering the historical events of the Siege of Leningrad
through the music of Dmitri Shostakovich and his Symphony n. 7,
blending together art, music, and civil theatre, in defence of the dignity
of every human being."
