Prokofiev: The Gambler

2008 Rated NR 2hr 15m

Renowned Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev's operatic take on Fyodor Dostoyevsky's The Gambler relates the tale of several people and the wrack and ruin they find when they gamble not only with money, but with one another's lives. The opera takes the complex, tragic story to its grandest possible scale, with stirring vocal performances from Misha Didyk, Kristine Opolais, Vladimir Ognovenko and other greats.
