by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky • This rarely-performed Tchaikovsky gem, set in medieval Provence, tells the story of a kind-hearted young princess sheltered from the truth about herself – she was born blind. One day a stranger enters her private garden where, entranced by her beauty, he asks for a token to remember her by: a red rose. Through this simple request, many lives are changed forever. Love and duty, deception and faith collide in this gentle fairytale romance performed by a superb Russian/American ensemble, staged by German director Christian Räth (Tristan & Isolde), and featuring a gorgeous and lushly romantic score conducted by Dallas Opera Music Director Emmanuel Villaume.
