19:00 The Queen of Spades
Opera in three acts to music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. 220 min (with one interval). Libretto by Modest Tchaikovsky after the novel of the same name by Alexander Pushkin. Music Director: Tugan Sokhiev. Stage Director: Rimas Tuminas. Director, Choreographer: Anželica Cholina. Sung in Russian with English surtitles. For seventeen years of the new century (the eighteenth year has just begun), there is the third time the Bolshoi is going to show a new stage version of The Queen of Spades, what makes this opera an absolute repertoire leader. Find the clue to this story, explain the secret meaning of mystical events — these goals have long been pursued by directors not only in drama and cinema, but also in opera. For sure, they’re bowing before Tchaikovsky, but never diminishing Pushkin (however, his novella is known to be dramatically different from the libretto). That is a carte blanche for a stage director. So the Bolshoi Theatre trusted an acclaimed drama theater director Rimas Tuminas to stage the third version of The Queen of Spades.
