The London Coliseum houses a classic opera from Tchaikovsky as The Queen Of Spades arrives as part of the English National Opera. The story has been told around the world and has been seen on the stage in the United Kingdom since the early 20th century with audiences continuing to flock to witness its powerful narrative rightly regarded as a masterpiece.

Dating back to 1890, The Queen Of Spades is Tchaikovsky’s 3-act opera that was taken from the book by Alexander Pushkin. Like much of Tchaikovsky’s work, it is highly regarded and its reappearance in the capital is a must see event.

It is a story of greed based around card games and the relentless pursuit by one man to obtain someone’s powers in the game. Army officer Hermann (Peter Bronder) requires the skills of the Countess (Felicity Palmer), who is particularly good at cards, and goes through her granddaughter Lisa (

It was first seen at the Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg and has since been staged in other locations worldwide, from the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow to the Metropolitan Opera in New York. Like many works from Tchaikovsky, its reputation only continues to grow.

Audiences picking up theatre tickets will be thrilled to witness tenor Peter Bronder in the role of Hermann. The gifted singer has appeared on many prestigious stages, from the Royal Opera House in London’s Covent Garden to the London Coliseum, with performances in well known operas like Wozzeck, Falstaff and La Bohème, among others.

The Queen Of Spades, with Edward Gardner as conductor and David Alden as director,, appears at the London Coliseum from Saturday 6th June 2015.
