Tchaikovsky: Pique Dame DVD (Stefan Herheim)

 

  • Former Music Director Mariss Jansons returns to Amsterdam to conduct Pique Dame at the Dutch National Opera with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. Renowned director Stefan Herheim staged Tchaikovsky’s much-loved opera about a young man who, for the prospect of earthly wealth, gambles away his chance for love and happiness. Herheim, whose stagings are famous for their multi layered levels of interpretation, attempts to reflect on the composer’s hidden love for men.
