On the occasion of the 125th anniversary of Sergei Prokofiev in April 2016 the worldwide acknowledged Russian conductor Valery Gergiev featuring the Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theatre and world’s leading singer and instrumentalists like Leonidas Kavakos, Denis Matsuev, Sergei Redkin, Daniil Trifonov, Olga Borodina or Mikhail Petrenko performed all masterworks of the composer.
A veritable Prokofiev marathon – the public had the chance to enjoy all symphonies, instrumental concerts, piano sonatas, major cantatas and oratorios like the expressionistic Seven, they are Seven, the provocative Cantata for the 20th Anniversary of the October Revolution as well as his later masterpieces Alexander Nevsky and Ivan the Terrible in Moscow and St. Petersburg on two days.

The film is mainly based on a true story and shows the similarities between him and Russia’s famous conductor Valery Gergiev.
