Paperback : At the time of the Cleveland performance of Lady Macbeth, Shostakovich was a rising Soviet figurehead, and a symbol of the symbiotic relationship between the Soviet government and Soviet creative artists. The affair also made many Americans re-evaluate their opinion of Shostakovich, and their understanding of the nature of his position as a Soviet artist. He became a chastised cultural representative of a Communist nation and an example of an artist who must submit his own personal style to outside dictates, in this case, government policy.
As the affair progressed, some Americans recognized that the very nature of the creative process was being redefined by the Communist desire for centralized control. By considering the American reception of Lady Macbeth in its historical context of changing American opinions of the Soviet Union, modern listeners can begin better to understand their own reactions, both to the opera and to the public image of Shostakovich himself.
