Times:
Tue 22nd Jan 18:45

In Tchaikovsky’s intense opera of obsession and the supernatural, Gherman is caught between the woman he loves and a destructive fixation. The Queen of Spades comes to the ROH in a new production that has already garnered five-star reviews in Amsterdam. The show is set in 1890, the year of the opera’s premiere. In his study, Tchaikovsky imagines the opera as his own story, its characters giving voice to his unfulfilled desires. This is an engrossing portrayal of a tortured creative artist and a gripping piece of gothic storytelling. Estimated duration: 3hrs 30min, including one interval. Sung in Russian with English subtitles.
