Both, opera “Iolanta” and ballet “The Nutcracker” were written for Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg as a single production. Tchaikovsky’s last opera “Iolanta” was inspired by a play “King Rene’s Daugher” by the Danish dramatist Henrik Hertz and turned into a libretto by the composer’s brother, Modest Tchaikovsky. In 1891, Tchaikovsky wrote to the director of Imperial Theatres Ivan Vsevolozhsky, who commissioned the work, “I am exhilarated about the drama “King Rene’s Daughter” that is a very suitable material for an opera and I do not doubt its success, unless writing hastily due to pressing deadlines will harm its integrity”.
Both the opera and the ballet were a success and the opera was performed eleven times that season. Tchaikovsky’s innovation in the genre of opera is closely connected to the traditions of the age and its search for new meanings. “Iolanta” is Tchaikovsky’s most vivacious and positive musical legend. It is a story of a blind princess Iolanta, who passionately begins to yearn for the inexhaustible colours of nature and light after she suddenly falls in love with knight Vaudemont. The idea of strong will, all-curing love and spiritual purity is blended into an absorbing mix of poetry and chaste lyric expression in Tchaikovsky’s opera. Iolanta’s magical healing is an ode to life, love, light and nature.
