QUEEN OF SPADES
THE ROYAL OPERA
SUNDAY, FEB. 17 • NOON
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. The opera is sung in Russian with English titles. Anticipated running time is 210 minutes including one intermission.
