Tchaikovsy’s 'The Queen of Spades' is based on a short story by Pushkin, and comes to the Royal Opera House in a new rare production that has already garnered five-star reviews in Amsterdam. An Opera in 3 Acts sung in Russian wth English subtitles.
In Tchaikovsky’s intense opera of obsession and the supernatural, Gherman is caught between the woman he loves and a destructive fixation. The production is set in 1890, the year of the opera’s premiere. In his study, Tchaikovsky imagines the opera into life as his own story, its characters giving voice to his unfulfilled desires.
Aleksandrs Antonenko (Gherman) and Eva-Maria Westbroek (Liza) head the cast and Royal Opera Chorus, conducted by Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera. This is an engrossing portrayal of a tortured creative artist and a gripping piece of gothic storytelling. The cast also includes Vladimir Stoyanov (Prince Yeletsky) and Felicity Palmer (Countess).
