    Hibla Gerzmava faces the operatic hurdle of singing all three
    heroines—each an idealized embodiment of some aspect of

    Villains, and Yves Abel conducts the sparkling score.

    Onegin, soprano Anna Netrebko takes on another Tchaikovsky
    heroine in the first opera of this intriguing double bill, consisting of
    an enchanting fairy tale (Iolanta) followed by an erotic psychological
    thriller (Duke Bluebeard’s Castle). Netrebko stars as the beautiful
    blind girl who experiences love for the first time in Iolanta, while
