A Letter, a Duel and Unfulfilled Love; this crown jewel of the Russian operatic repertoire a passionate drama filled with sweepingly beautiful and unabashedly romantic music. Tchaikovsky's best-loved opera is based on Alexander Pushkin's profoundly human verse drama. Packed with memorable music, dances and a heart-stopping duel, it tells the bittersweet tale of a love that could have been. Our extravagant production will transport you to the courtly elegance of nineteenth century Russia. Sung by an internationally acclaimed cast in Russian with English supertitles.
