A deliciously intimate yet devastatingly poignant depiction of unbridled passions and unrequited love, Tchaikovsky’s lyrical masterpiece returned to ENO in a new staging that reunited 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.

The show then moved to the Metropolitan Opera in NYC in 2013, directed by Deborah Warner and Fiona Shaw and conducted by Valery Gergiev.

The piece features seven breaks and intervals for set changes. Finn Ross and Ian William Galloway of Mesmer co-designed video, projecting a series of seasonal scenic images in these breaks, setting the wider world of the Larin Estate and titling each Act.
