Overview

The immediacy of everyday life is felt especially in the operas of Tchaikovsky, where we find characters sharing stories, enjoying dances and, of course, singing songs with each other. Tolstoy’s fiction similarly finds its characters attending the opera-house as just one of many places of social contact. In this talk we will explore operatic encounters in Russian culture, including scenes from The Queen of Spades and Eugene Onegin.
