Opera in three acts
Booklet by Modest Tchaikovsky after Poushkin
Premiere at the Mariinski Theatre in St. Petersburg on December 19, 1890
Sung in Russian, surtitled in French

Adapted from a short story by Pushkin, Tchaikovsky's opera is haunted by the morbid frenzy of the game and the madness, crossed by the supernatural: a very old countess once obtained at the court of Versailles the secret of a combination of three cards allowing to win for sure.

But in St. Petersburg, everything is trompe l'oeil: Hermann's love for Lisa masks the Countess's obsession with secrecy; the pastiches of 18th-century French music, the masked balls no longer hide the evil of living and the decay of a reign - that of the Romanovs - under which Tchaikovsky composes.
By happily alternating dramatic scenes with genre scenes: children playing soldiers in the park, card games in the tripots, The Queen of Spades brings forth a world at its twilight. And that same ending world applauded to break everything in 1890.
Four opera houses from the Southern Region have teamed up for this new staging of La Dame de Pique by Olivier Py, director of the Avignon Festival.
