Hans Neuenfels, the luminary of modern director`s theatre, provides a compelling, multi-layered staging of Tchaikovsky`s Pique Dame at Salzburg Festival. In the stark, mostly abstract sets by Christian Schmidt, Neuenfels ``draws gripping performances from a strong cast`` (The New York Times) including Brandon Jovanovich and Evgenia Muraveva in the title roles of Herman and Lisa and legendary singer Hanna Schwarz as Countess. Mariss Jansons, ``a compelling director in his element`` (The New York Times) makes his rare appearance as an opera conductor, at the helm of the Wiener Philharmoniker ``Another triumph in this hot festival summer!`` (Neue Zürcher Zeitung). Mariss Jansons, ``maybe the best connoisseur of this unjustly neglected opera`` (Süddeutsche Zeitung), turns this Queen of Spades with as much verve as sensitivity into a ``captivating musical drama`` (Die Zeit).
