The sensation of the season! One of the most mysterious opera in the world is back to Bolshaya Nikitskaya Street . "The Queen of Spades" by Tchaikovsky will be the first premiere of Season 2017/2018 in "Helikon-Opera".
"… Either I am terribly mistaken or “The Queen of Spades“ is a true masterpiece..." - wrote Peter Tchaikovsky to Grand Duke Konstantin Konstantinovich of Russia. Well, time has put everything in its place – created within only 44 days in Florence, the performance has gained a universal popularity and keeps its leadership among all Russian operas in the global repertoire.
"The Queen of Spades" was highly valued as Tchaikovsky's best work by a worldwide famous conductor, People’s Artist of the USSR Vladimir Fedoseev. He will take the lead of the musical process of recreating the performance in "Helikon-Opera".
Unique interpretation, modern stage language, love of the music of Tchaikovsky - all of that became the hallmarks of Helikon's "The Queen of Spades" and will be preserved in the new version. A thoughtful vision of Maestro Fedoseyev, stunning technical capabilities of the new hall and artistic talent of Helikon's troupe will also be of great public interest.
