Description
Composed in the spring of 1885—a happy and reclusive period in Tchaikovsky's life—The Enchantress is a mature work, immediately preceding The Queen of Spades in his operatic output. It portrays a kind and passionate innkeeper of such extraordinary beauty and charm that she enraptures all who come in contact with her. In a letter, Tchaikovsky revealed that he was drawn to this theme by a desire to "illustrate in music" the famous concluding lines of Goethe's Faust: "the Eternal Feminine draws us upwards." This excellent 1984 production makes a strong case for The Enchantress as an unjustly neglected masterpiece.

"I am immediately won over by the haunting prelude, in which the gentle, plaintive melody of Kuma's first-act aria frames more agitated and ominous music reminiscent of several better-known Tchaikovsky works. I find the score melodious, vivid, and involving, with resourceful use of chorus and orchestra…. The libretto … provide[s] ample opportunity for dramatic confrontations, the expression of deep emotion, and colorful scene-painting, all elements in which the composer excelled."—Fanfare
