The Queen of Spades – 'Sweet air, just like a May day’

Extracts | Tchaikovsky

A crowd of nursemaids, governesses, strollers and gamblers sing in a lovely May morning...

'At last the Lord has sent us a sunny day.
Sweet air, beautiful sky, just like a May day.
How delightful it is to stroll all day long!
Many years have gone by
Since we have since we have seen such weather
In days of old, we had finer summers, autumns and springs.'

The Queen of Spades - Watch the full performance on OperaVision from 5 May to 5 November 2020.
