A deliciously intimate yet devastatingly poignant depiction of unbridled passions and unrequited love, Tchaikovsky’s lyrical masterpiece returns to ENO in a new staging that reunites director Deborah Warner and Music Director Edward Gardner for the first time since their acclaimed collaboration on Britten’s Death in Venice in May 2007.
Alongside soprano Amanda Echalaz (praised by The Times as possessing ‘a big juicy sound, powerful from its coppery bottom to its glinting top’) as the impressionable young country-girl Tatyana, tenor Toby Spence (singled out by the Evening Standard for ‘bringing ardour and panache to the title role’ of 2010’s Faust) plays the tragically self-dramatising poet Lensky. Prize-winning young Norwegian baritone Audun Iversen makes his ENO debut as the cynical big-city dandy who discovers, too late, that true love was once within his grasp.
