Feb 17
The Royal Opera: Queen of Spades

Live On Screen from the London Stage! An inventive production of Tchaikovsky’s opera

Gherman (Aleksandrs Antonenko) is a penniless soldier obsessed by both gambling and the beautiful Liza (Eva-Maria Westbroek).

After Gherman tries to discover a winning card trick from Liza’s grandmother the Countess (Felicity Palmer), and she dies of fright, his obsession turns into madness.

Stefan Herheim’s inventive production places Tchaikovsky himself at the heart of the action.  The Queen of Spades features some of Tchaikovsky’s most beautiful music, with grand choruses, intimate arias and impassioned duets.

Antonio Pappano conducts.
