Tchaikowsky’s “Merchant of Venice” offers proof of David Pountney’s eye for buried gems of the opera literature. The tried and trusted team behind Keith Warner and an elite cast make the posthumous premiere at 2013’s Bregenz Festival “a restitution to remember” (London Telegraph). Composer André Tchaikowsky first made his mark in Great Britain as a concert pianist. Despite his immense success, Tchaikowsky’s real passion was for composition. “Under the direction of soundscaper Erik Nielsen this opera sounds wonderfully brilliant, lightfooted, with comedic swing” (Die Zeit).
