Dmitri Shostakovich in Moscow - 1973

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

I am very happy that the Moscow Kamerny Musical Theatre has now decided to include The Nose in its repertoire. It is an excellent production. The talented conductor Gennady Rozhdestvensky is in charge of the music. And I must say that Boris Pokrovsky's production deserves the highest praise. He has lots of inventive details and humour, but in spite of this there is a great deal of depth in his production. I am very glad that my opera has been revived.
