Venue: Amey Theatre  |  Town: Abingdon

In  Tchaikovsky’s  intense  opera  of  obsession  and  the  supernatural,  Gherman  is  caught  between  the  woman  he  loves  and  a  destructive  fixation.  The  Queen of Spades is  based  on  a  short  story  by  Pushkin,  and  comes  to  the  Royal  Opera  House  in  a  new  production  that  has  already  garnered  five-star  reviews  in Amsterdam.  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  and  Eva-Maria  Westbroek  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.
