The Queen of Spades
Des Moines Metro Opera
Tchaikovsky anticipated the 20th century with this surreal masterpiece about obsession and psychosis, qualities given all the more power juxtaposed with the elegant milieu and music of its 18th century setting. Gherman parlays his love for the young aristocrat Lisa into a life-and-death wager, confronting the aged Countess, known as the Queen of Spades. Ms. Gartland returns to Des Moines Metro Opera in her role debut as Lisa.
