Pikovaia Dama LIVE

Pyotr Tchaikovsky

Please select a country from the list to get additional information.

The tragic destiny of the male protagonist- a compulsive gambler whose passion drives him to sacrifice his love, to commit murder and ultimately to die- is underscored by Tchaikovsky’s masterly musical treatment of the major phantasmagorical elements so widespread in Russian literature and art. Pikovaya Dama is a work of great inspiration and dramatic efficacy which ranks alongside Yevgeny Onyegin at the very forefront of Tchaikovsky’s operatic output.
