Iolanta by Pyotr Tchaikovsky
A beautifully crafted and modern coming-of-age fantasy about love in all its forms.
Princess Iolanta is blind. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and in the care of attendants and her insistent father King Rene, she knows something is missing. When a famed physician and the charming Vaudemont arrive to offer a cure, Iolanta must choose: the life built for her, or one she’s never seen.
Iolanta is Tchaikovsky’s final opera, and features the composer at the height of his compositional prowess. It makes its Chicago premiere with direction by internationally acclaimed and award-winning director Paul Curran and under the baton of COT’s own Staley Music Director, Maestro Lidiya Yankovskaya.
