A political psycho-thriller

In Baden-Baden, Kirill Petrenko is realising one of his dream projects: the performance of Tchaikovsky’s opera Mazeppa, which the conductor describes as a “stunning work whose plot is more topical than ever”. The Berliner Philharmoniker will present a concert performance of the love and political drama about a Cossack leader at the time of Tsar Peter I with renowned singers.

“The piece is a political psychological thriller with super-dramatic scenes,” says Olga Peretyatko enthusiastically. The soprano takes on the role of Marie, Mazeppa’s lover, alongside baritone Vladislav Sulimsky, who sings the title role.

The programme will also be performed on 14 November 2021 at the Philharmonie and broadcast in the Digital Concert Hall. Buy tickets
