Program notes

Iolanta, Tchaikovsky’s final opera, in Peter Sellars’ 2012 production at the Teatro Real in Madrid. Premiered in 1892, it is a one-act work based on the Danish play Kong Renés Datter (King René's Daughter) by Henrik Hertz, a romanticized account of the life of Yolande de Bar. It contains all aspects of the composer’s mastery: beautiful melodies, clear structure and genuine passion. Sellars paints this production as a spiritual quest in search of light.
