Kirill Petrenko conducts Tchaikovsky’s “Queen of Spades”

No opera demonstrates more vividly than Tchaikovsky’s The Queen of Spades the fact that people’s desires are often their undoing. The outsider Herman strives for success at cards but loses everything in the end. Lisa searches for her great love, is disappointed and takes her life. There is also a mysterious countess. Kirill Petrenko conducts the passionate music Tchaikovsky composed for this dark tale.
