Dat de vorderingen van de wetenschap lang niet altijd een zegen voor de mensheid zijn, blijkt wanneer de chirurg Filip Filipovitsj Preobrasjenski een menselijke hypofyse inplant in de hersens van de hond Sjarik. Het gemuteerde dier ontwikkelt zich tot de misdadiger Sjarikov, die niets en niemand ontziet. De enige oplossing is een tweede operatie...

Judging from his affinity for vocal music, it was just a question of time before the Russian avant garde composer Alexander Raskatov produced his first opera. With his choice of Mikhail Bulgakov's satiric novel 'Heart of a Dog' (1925) he follows in the footsteps of works by fellow Russians Shostakovich ('The Nose') and Schnittke ('Life with an Idiot'). In a score laden with fantasy and emotion, he tells the absurd tale of a professor who implants a human pituitary gland into a stray dog, which proceeds to become more and more human.
