Queen of Spades is the first classical opera to be staged in a fully immersive format, complete with gorgeous costumes, breathtaking lighting, and lavish multimedia elements. Viewers will plunge into the world of illusion conjured by Alexander Pushkin in his famous tale and set to music by the incomparable Peter Tchaikovsky. Only 54 guests will be admitted to each performance, the number of cards in a deck.
The venue, the historic Goncharov-Filippov mansion, witnessed many a card game played by Pushkin’s wife’s grandfather. The mansion will ring with live music performed by soloist from leading Moscow theaters, backed by thirty-musician chorus and orchestra. Ballet dancers will take viewers on their mysterious journey, and their guide into the world of chance, passion, and cruel fate will be Pushkin himself. The opera’s structure remains the same: three acts, seven scenes, and one singular Queen of Spades.
