Editorial Reviews

Based on Dostoyevsky's novel of the same name, The Gambler is a dark study of human failings and the corruptive power of money. In this work, everyone gambles: the hero Alexei, the General and even the wealthy aunt Babulenka gamble with money; Blanche, the Marquis and Polina who loves Alexei gamble with their fellow human beings. The Staatskapelle Berlin under the baton of world-famous conductor Daniel Barenboim provides the orchestral sound to the full, lustrous voices of Misha Didyk, Kristine Opolais, Vladimir Ognovenko and Stefania Toczyska.

Directed by Dmitri Tcherniakov
