Iolanta is a one act lyric opera, sung in Russian, by Tchaikovsky. Performed in the style of a nineteenth-century Italian melodrama, the scenes have a recitative introduction followed by a single arioso, aria, duet or chorus.

Persephone is a three act melodrama, sung in French, by Stravinsky. It is a story of regeneration, symbolised in Sellars use of dancers from the Cambodian dance company, Amrita Performing Arts.

Peter Sellars, one of the most innovative creators on today's stage, has linked these two productions by using the same stage setting, instantly archaic yet modern, and lit by rich colours to define the journey from darkness to light.

The orchestra, under the expert direction of Teodor Currentzis, performed exquisitely. It surged through the mellifluous, Mozart-inflected string deluges of Tchaikovsky's Iolanta, then picked along Stravinsky's cubist angularities, where flashes of stridency were momentarily backlit by lyricism.’ Wall Street Journal
