Tchaikovsky’s The Queen of Spades at Eden

With Eden Culture comes an extensive cultural programme, including live and recorded broadcasts from the Royal Opera House, as well as exhibitions on Eden Cinemas’ screens. Eden Culture caters to a whole new audience with a thirst and love for art, music and theatre.

In Tchaikovsky’s intense opera of obsession and the supernatural, The Queen of Spades, Gherman is caught between the woman he loves and a destructive fixation.

Based on a short story by Pushkin, The Queen of Spades 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. Aleksandrs Antonenko and Eva-Maria Westbroek head the cast and Royal Opera Chorus, conducted by Antonio Pappano, music director of The Royal Opera.

The Queen of Spades, an engrossing portrayal of a tortured creative artist and a gripping piece of gothic storytelling, will be shown today at 7.45pm and on Sunday at 3pm at the Eden Cinemas, St Julian’s.
