Teatro Real: Piotr Tchaikovsky: Iolanta

submitted by Marvin's Underground Music Ondemand on 05/08/18 1

Iolanta and Perséphone - A double bill consisting of two stage works that "represent an ideal of beauty, poetry and hope" forms this new production in Madrid from the Teatro Real. In both works the progression from darkness to light acts as an initiation rite that completely transforms the existential attitude of the leading characters. Iolanta, a mature composition by Tchaikovsky, was premiered in 1892 and it contains all aspects of the composer's mastery: beautiful melodies, clear structure and genuine passion in its many varieties.
