Win a swanky Russian weekend in London
To mark 100 years since the 1917 Russian Revolution, we've teamed up with the Royal Academy of Arts to offer one lucky reader and a guest a right Russian weekend in London.
The winner will have out-of-hours access to the Academy's exhibition 'Revolution: Russian Art 1917–1932', taking in all the groundbreaking avant-garde art and Soviet propaganda machine graphics pieces on their own private tour. Following that they'll enjoy the world premiere at the Barbican (March 25) of revolutionary composer Shostakovich’s hitherto lost original piano score to 'New Babylon', a Soviet film about the 1871 Paris Commune, plus Russian vodka-based cocktails at the bar. And to top off the weekend in style, the winner will stay at the five-star Hotel Café Royal on Regent Street in a luxury suite fit for an oligarch.
To be in with a chance of winning this weekend away, simply answer the question below correctly:
Who composed the piano score to 'New Babylon'?
Restored from 1929 manuscript of Dmitri Shostakovich’s only silent film work.
Thank you for entering!
We've got our fingers crossed for you
