Festspielhaus Baden-Baden: Tchaikovsky: Pique Dame

The Festspielhaus Baden-Baden hosts the Easter Festival 2022 as a great return of the Live Opera with Tchaikovsky´s classic Pique Dame. The sets and cast of this production set standards and compete with cinema set design. Together for the first time, Kirill Petrenko and the Berliner Philharmoniker perform an opera production. Pique Dame was written during probably the most difficult period in Tchaikovsky´s life, when he himself was already beginning to sense how hard he would have to work for his own happiness. The very self-critical composer considered it to be his best opera. Now it is Kirill Petrenko together with Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier who are reshuffling the cards.

"Pique Dame will hardly be seen with a better cast of singers at the moment."
