The Queen of Spades

Sunday, April 22

Film Suburbs & Beyond

 One of the highlights of the Holland Festival, Tchaikovsky's much-loved opera is staged by renowned director Stefan Herheim, telling the tale of a young man who gambles away his chance at love for the prospect of earthly wealth. The score of The Queen of Spades was written by Tchaikovsky in only 44 days during a period of turmoil about himself and his homosexuality. Former Music Director Mariss Jansons returns to Amsterdam to conduct The Queen of Spades at the Dutch National Opera with "his" Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.
