Opernring 11010 Wien
The opera, based on the novel by Dostoevsky, the Player by Sergei Prokofiev was completed in 1917, but could not be premiered because of the political conditions of Russia at the time. It was not until 1929 that the opera was performed in Brussels. The work is similar to Dostoevskys work on the recovery and the subsequent catastrophic end of a compulsive gambler. Until now, the player was only offered as a guest play, but for the first time a new production of Prokofiev's opera will be performed atthe Vienna State Opera.
