Kirill Petrenko conducts Tchaikovsky’s “Queen of Spades” in Baden-Baden

Love, gambling and madness are at the heart of Tchaikovsky’s opera Queen of Spades. The composer sets the action in sometimes ecstatic, sometimes touchingly intimate music. The Berliner Philharmoniker and chief conductor Kirill Petrenko presented the work at the Baden-Baden Easter Festival “and breathed life into the score. Everything was simply there. And almost incidentally, Kirill Petrenko was enormously attentive to his singers and the fabulous Slovak Philharmonic Choir” (Süddeutsche Zeitung).
