Obsession and Greed in Tchaikovsky’s The Queen of Spades

Monday, December 02, 2019 6:00 PM

A mysterious hand of cards, an unhappy betrothal, and a tormenting ghost all come together in Tchaikovsky’s riveting drama The Queen of Spades. The composer’s third opera based on a Pushkin story, this elegant fable is a tantalizing tale of love and obsession. Lecturer John J.H. Muller explores how the composer uses 18th-century pastiche and highly original melodic and motivic elements to evoke the world of this haunting opera.
