Berliner Philharmoniker
Kirill Petrenko

  • Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
    The Queen of Spades, opera in three acts, op. 68 (concert performance)

    Arsen Soghomonyan tenor (Herman), Vladislav Sulimsky baritone (Count Tomsky), Boris Pinkhasovich baritone (Prince Yeletsky), Doris Soffel contralto (Countess), Asmik Grigorian soprano (Liza), Aigul Akhmetshina mezzo-soprano (Polina), Slovac Philharmonic Choir

No opera demonstrates more vividly than Peter 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.
