IOLANTA -PERSEPHONE at Teatro Real, Madrid 2012

IOLANTA -PERSEPHONE at Teatro Real, Madrid 2012

Music by Piotr Ilich Chaikovski (1840-1893)
Libretto by Modest Chaikovski, based on King René’s Daughter by Henrik Hertz.

An extraordinary double programme with two works which “represent an ideal of beauty, poetry and hope”. Iolanta and Perséphone tell stories of transformation; two dramas laden with symbolism which take a path from light to darkness and back again, where there is always a shadow of one’s self behind each person. Peter Sellars tells the story using a single setting with very intense, abstract visual images where everything changes, as in Russian symbolist drama.
