Although the plot of Pushkin's The Queen of Spades did not really interest Tchaikovsky at first. But over time, this novel more and more got under his skin. He started the work on 19 February 1890 in Florence. The opera was created, according to the composer, "with dedication and pleasure" and was completed in an extremely short time: forty-four days. The premiere took place in St. Petersburg at the Mariinsky Theatre on 7(19) December 1890. It was a huge success. In general, nothing has changed now…
