CRITIC REVIEW:

“IOLANTA is a gem of an opera....the music is gorgeous, especially the lullaby that ends the first part, the Iolanta-Vaudemont duet in the second, and the splendid ensemble writing in the third, where Tchaikovsky keeps adding voices and instruments to dazzling effect….A valuable introduction to the opera.”
