The Queen of Spades

The Queen of Spades is an opera I’ve been keen on seeing for a while, as I love Pushkin’s original story and am fond of Tchaikovsky’s music. I went to see the new Opera Holland Park production and I really loved it.

Opera Holland Park operate on a strict budget but they did a good job of hiding it, with sumptuous sets and rich costumes. I enjoyed the music and I thought the cast did a superb job, especially Rosalind Plowright as the Countess. The whole thing was tense and atmospheric, and I was really impressed.
