From the Royal Festival Hall, London. The eighth of Tchaikovsky's ten operas, The
Enchantress was first performed in St Petersburg in 1887. The enchantress of the title is Nastassya, a young widow who keeps an inn with a lively reputation by the ferry over the Oka River. Her involvement with two men from the local viceregal family proves the cause of not only her own downfall, but theirs as well. This concert performance by the Royal Opera is sung in Russian and introduced by Edward Blakeman.
