Odyssey Opera Presents 'Troika'

3 one-act Rachmaninoff operas in concert

Symphony Hall

Symphony Hall, Boston, MA

What drives a man to the brink of madness? An exiled Russian nobleman consumed by jealousy, an aging Baron who dies calling not for his son but for his gold, and a young couple consigned to the Second Circle of Hell after an illicit kiss. Three timeless tales inspired by Alexander Pushkin and Dante’s Inferno and brought to life in this presentation of the complete operatic output of one of the most beloved Russian composers, Sergei Rachmaninoff.


Libretto by Vladimir Nemirovich, inspired by Alexander Pushkin's The Gypsies

An exiled man desperate to build a home with a beautiful woman destroys everything when he discovers her in the arms of another.

The Miserly Knight

From a short story by Alexander Pushkin

A dying Baron amasses tremendous amounts of gold which he guards zealously, alienating everyone—including his own son.

Francesca da Rimini

Libretto by Modest Tchaikovsky after Dante Alighieri

Young lovers are murdered and consigned to the Second Circle of Hell after a stolen kiss.

Presented in Concert, with English supertitles. Collective US Premiere.
