Today’s daily opera fix comes in the form of Opera North’s new production of Tchaikovsky’s The Queen of Spades.

An epic story set in nineteenth century Russia, based on a novel by the Russian author Pushkin, Opera North takes on The Queen of Spades for the first time, promising a darkly glittering theatrical experience. Acclaimed director and writer Neil Bartlett undertakes this as his first full scale opera production and Richard Farnes conducts.


The Queen of Spades opens on Thursday 20 October. For more go here.
