Why See Metropolitan Opera - The Queen of Spades?

Classical & Opera

Back at the met for the first time since 2011

One man's dangerous obsession with winning at the card tables drives this devastating tale of terror from Pytor and Modest Tchaikovsky, marking its first Met performances since 2011. In a sweeping production from Elijah Moshinsky, we're taken back to the St. Petersburgh of Catherine The Great, where opulence and terror walk hand in hand as we follow a desperate soldier whose mission to rise above his station via the gaming tables proves to be his chaotic undoing. Bursting with Russian romanticism, The Queen of Spades is an intense and sweeping work that asks how high would you bet on the odds of success.

Starring Aleksandrs Antonenko as Hermann, Lise Davidson as his devastated lover Lisa and Larissa Diadkova as the Countess, the titular Queen of Spades, who Herman hounds for the secrets of the cards.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.
