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 Two comes as moment of respite. The act ends with a sincere love duet between Kuma and Yuri (soprano Anna Nechaeva and tenor Eduard Martynyuk).

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.
