The Royal Opera: Queen of Spades

The Royal Opera: Queen of Spades

Presented by California Film Institute and Downtown San Rafael Arts District at Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center

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.
