The Festspielhaus Baden-Baden is planning the Easter Festival 2022 as a great return of the Live Opera with Tchaikovsky’s classic “Pique Dame”. Sets and cast of this production are intended to set standards and compete with cinema set design.

Together for the first time, Kirill Petrenko and the Berliner Philharmoniker will perform an opera production.

“Pique Dame” was written during probably the most difficult period in Tchaikovsky's life, when he himself was already beginning to sense how hard he would have to work for his own happiness. The very self-critical composer considered it to be his best opera. Now it is Kirill Petrenko together with Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier who will be reshuffling the cards.
