"One of nine important events for theater lovers."
"The opera performers sing, at times a mere arm's length away from the audience members"
“There are no stupid masks, just magnificent production design, direction, writing, and performances. The ticket price is comparable to a seat in the parterre at the Bolshoi, but the impact is far greater!”
“You’ll meet the three-armed man, a bunch of Masons, and Piotr Nalich as Herman.”
“Pushkin leads a group of viewers through the rooms of the historic Goncharov - Fillipov Mansion, as all around musicians, opera singers, and ballet dancers perform The Queen of Spades, which Tchaikovsky considered the peak of his work as a composer.”
“Here’s something totally new: it seems even the classical opera The Queen of Spades can be immersive!”
“The first classical opera in immersive format.”
“It’s Tchaikovsky and Pushkin in full-on 3D… It’s as if you put on a helmet and tumbled into their heads, into their mad world filled with unexpected fantasies.”
“There’s only one thing to do: to shout like Herman, ‘What is this life of ours? Nothing but a game!’ and join the actors and performers.”
"There's never been anything like it before: the opera promenade The Queen of Spades opens new horizons in immersive theater productions."
“You get to sit right at the gaming table. You’ll be invited into the Queen of Spades’ bedroom. Herman loses his mind right at your very feet. And there’s not an orchestra pit in sight!”
