Lecture by Alexey Parin I "Laboratory of the modern spectator" for the premiere of "Iolanta"
Iolanta is Tchaikovsky's last opera. It is full of dark mysticism, but also enthusiastic exclamations, ecstatic glorifications of light and peace sound in it. In the center of it is a long love duet, in which the main object of dispute is the light, the ways of knowing God are seriously discussed. What life circumstances forced the composer to choose this plot, in which medieval matter was dressed in the outfits of Art Nouveau? What esoteric intricacies formed the basis of the opera's complex symbolic structure? Theater expert, music critic Alexei Parin will try to answer all these questions in his lecture.
