"The Queen of Spades" is  the most perfect opera of  P.I. Tchaikovsky,  masterpiece of Russian and world classics. This musical tragedy shakes by psychological truthfulness of reproduction of  thoughts and feelings of the characters, their hopes, sufferings and death.  Forces of  rock dominating on  man and wreckin him, clashed here in the showdown with the forces of love and light. In the embodiment of the dark and sinister  forms Tchaikovsky reached that heights that  the music world didn’t know beforehand  but with the same power clear basis of love is embodied here. By purity and penetration, by lyrical spirituality " The Queen of Spades" is peerless.

The basis of the libretto is the novel by A.S. Pushkin. On the stage of the Musical Theatre of Karelia opera is staged for the first time.
