Although Tchaikovsky devoted a number of his works to the opera stage, only the operas Eugene Onegin – as the height of the Russian romantic opera - and The Queen of Spades, which were both created after the literary material by Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin, were famous worldwide. Pushkin's poem especially touched the great composer, as its verses capture a myriad of diverse emotions and especially the transformation – friendship into great love and love into deep hatred and even death. The reflection of the souls of the two romantic giants, Pushkin and Tchaikovsky, as experienced in this opera, awakens even today and over and over again the imagination of every opera lover.
