Kirill Petrenko conducts Tchaikovsky’s “Iolanta”

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s last opera, Iolanta, is tender, magical and ambiguous. The focus of the story is a blind princess, who regains her sight through love – a rare happy ending in 19th-century opera. Tchaikovsky composed poetic music for the work, in which we also hear his love for French opera. You can enjoy this unjustly forgotten gem in a performance conducted by Kirill Petrenko with Asmik Grigorian in the title role.
