  1. The Queen of Spades, 'Pique Dame' - Pyotr Tchaikovsky

A tale of obsession and deceit, Tchaikovsky's penultimate opera is recognised as one of his greatest works. Hermann, a young officer, falls in love with Lisa, a girl he's never spoken to, and who is engaged to the Prince Yeletsky. Hermann uses Lisa to gain access to her grandmother, a Countess, who won a fortune in the casino with the secret of "the three cards".

Hermann is determined to discover that secret, but the Countess dies before revealing it. In his obsession to find the winning combination, Hermann loses Lisa, his mind and ultimately his own life.

Carl Tanner, who recently received a standing ovation at the Met in Fanciulla, plays the demented Hermann.

Sung in Russian with surtitles

Tickets available from 14th February.
