From the House of the Dead

From the House of the DeadT1594284899
Telling the story of the inmates of a Siberian prison, the opera reflects their feelings of pain, oppression and injustice as each recount why they ended up in jail. Their gloom is eased as they painstakingly nurse an eagle back to health, which comes to symbolize both Russia and the notion of freedom.
Author Leos Janacek
Book by Dostoyevsky
