and a destructive fixation. The Queen of Spades is based on a short story by Pushkin, and comes to the Royal Opera House in a new production
that has already garnered fivestar reviews in Amsterdam. The production is set in 1890, the year of the opera’s premiere.

but underneath the surface run darker undercurrents, leading to a tragic ending.
The opera’s wealth of melodies includes the famous Brindisi and the exuberant ‘Sempre libera’ – both showing the lyricism of Italian opera
at its most immediately appealing. Richard Eyre’s production for The Royal Opera brings out all the emotional colour,
from the giddy discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion.
Lavish period sets and costumes enhance the reality of a moving story based on true life.
