About the work

Kirill Petrenko conducts Tchaikovsky's “Queen of Spades” No opera demonstrates more vividly than Tchaikovsky’s The Queen of Spades the fact that people’s desires are often their undoing. The outsider Herman wants nothing more than to succeed at card-playing but loses everything in the end. Lisa searches for her great love, is bitterly disappointed and takes her life. There is also a mysterious Countess with magical secrets. It is a dark world, which Tchaikovsky reveals in passionate, dramatic music. After staged productions at the Easter Festival in Baden-Baden, Kirill Petrenko conducts the work in a concert performance at the Philharmonie Berlin.
