Tchaikovsky’s  THE QUEEN OF SPADES

Aleksandrs Antonenko | Vladimir Stoyanov | Felicity Palmer | Eva-Maria Westbroek
Conductor: Antonio Pappano | Director: Stefan Herheim

LIVE: Tuesday 22 January 2019 [6.45pm]

The Queen of Spades is one of Tchaikovsky’s most impressive and varied scores, containing grand choruses, intimate arias and duets (such as Liza and Gherman’s passionate Act I love duet), a masquerade paying tribute to Mozart and a terrifying supernatural episode. Stefan Herheim’s spectacular production places Tchaikovsky himself at the heart of the action, and asks searching questions about the nature of creativity and the parallels between life and art.

Approximate running time: 210 minutes including one interval
Sung in Russian with English subtitles
