The 2018/19 Season will feature great classics from The Royal Ballet’s repertory and world-renowned opera stars including Michael Fabiano, Jonas Kaufmann, Anna Netrebko and Eva-Maria Westbroek.

Upcoming show: The Queen of Spades 

In Tchaikovsky’s intense opera of obsession and the supernatural, Gherman is caught between the woman he loves 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 five star reviews in Amsterdam.

The production is set in 1890, the year of the opera’s premiere. In his study, Tchaikovsky imagines the opera into life as his own story, its characters giving voice to his unfulfilled desires. Aleksandr Antonenko and Eva-Maria Westbroek head the cast and Royal Opera Chorus, conducted by Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera. This is an engrossing portrayal of a tortured creative artist and a gripping piece of gothic storytelling.

Approximate running time: 3 hours and 30 minutes, with a break

Sung in Russian with English subtitles.
