The author compares Gogol's 'Nose' with Dmitri Shostakovich's opera based on this play, performed in the Metropolitan Opera in New York. The fact that the composer's biographer Solom Volkov first recognized that the play was an autobiographical work, serves as a incentive for the analysis of the complexity of the composer's life. The author then deals with William Kentridge - the director and stage director of the New York production of the play. He analyses nine films Kentridge made in the years 1989-2003. The films form a cycle, whose main character is Soho Eckstein, a fictitious industry magnate. The author also describes how Kentridge uses his experience as an animator in his theatre and opera productions, which always feature film screenings (e.g. in Shostakovich's 'Nose')
