Description
The last of Tchaikovsky's operas, Iolanta was originally meant to be paired on the same program with The Nutcracker. An hour-long fable about a blind princess who learns to see, it is one of his most beautiful and moving works. This 1982 Bolshoi Opera production boasts lavish staging and a magnificent cast, led by Galina Kalinina in the title role, Artur Eisen as King René, and Lev Kuznetsov as Count Vaudémont. Optional subtitles are in English and other languages.

"Vaudémont falls in love with Iolanta and wakens her both to her plight and to 'the joy of light.' This central passage of awakening is as consistently strong as anything Tchaikovsky wrote for opera."—Opera News

"The female quartet that opens the opera … may borrow too heavily from Eugene Onegin's equivalent—but its sweet shadows, melancholy with a trace of despair, are affecting, and they provide a good foundation from which the opera can build to its resplendent climax."—Fanfare
