The Power to Seduce: Tchaikovsky's 'Enchantress'


THE HIT SINGLE: Kuma and Yuri's Love Duet

Much of The Enchantress is revolves around anguish, scheming and betrayal, so the finale of Act Three comes as moment of respite. The act ends with a sincere love duet between Kuma and Yuri (soprano Asmik Grigorian and tenor Maxim Aksenov).

THE B SIDE: Prologue

Given Tchaikovsky's reputation for deeply moving symphonies and ballets, it's no surprise that the opera opens with a striking orchestral Prologue.
