Dmitri Shostakovich in Russia - in the beginning of the 1900's

from Dmitry Shostakovich-About Himself and His Times, pages 318-319:

Many years have passed since then, but I well remember that production of The Nose. The conductor was Samuil Samosud, the producer was Nikolai Smolich, and the sets were by Vladimir Dmitriyev. It was a magnificent show, and raised the roof at the Maly Opera House.
