Hear music so defiant, jubilant and provocative that it could only be birthed by revolution as the New England Conservatory Philharmonia plays Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Beethoven, Wolff: Every Revolution Should Have Music This Good. Beethoven's Egmont celebrates the 16th-century Dutch nobleman who heroically opposed the despotic Duke of Alba, while Shostakovich's 1957 Symphony No. 11, subtitled The Year 1905, is a post-Stalinist look back at the Russian Revolution. Returning to Boston Symphony Hall for the first time since 2010, the polished NEC ensemble -- under the baton of world-renowned conductor Hugh Wolff -- also welcomes back award-winning alum Xiang Yu to perform Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 1.

Very pleasantly surprised by both the play and the production as had never been to this theatre before. The actors were great, and the play was thought-provoking. It's in a similar vein to "God of Carnage" and "Rapture Blister Burn." I was not going to go, as the gambling angle was played up in the poster art and description & I'm horribly bored by gambling talk, but the play does a good job of using gambling simply as a metaphor for life's tricky situations, a la that song "The Gambler." Has some interesting commentary about freedom and independence for women across different cultures. This production is every bit as good as something you'd see at the Huntington or the A.R.T.
The play is directed by Anna Trachtman.
Twins runs 80 minutes with no intermission, and is recommended for ages 12 and older due to adult language and themes.
