About

Celebrated 'Jolanta' with the Gürzenich Orchestra and the Cologne Opera under Dmitrij Kitajenko in a live recording in the Cologne Philharmonie.

The world premieres of Iolanta and The Nutcracker took place on 18 December 1892 at St Petersburg’s Mariinsky Theatre. “The execution of both”, wrote the composer to his brother Anatoly the next day, “was magnificent, and that of the ballet perhaps too magnificent – its brilliance made one’s eyes tired”.

Gustav Mahler conducted the first performance of the one-act opera outside Russia on 3 January 1893 in Hamburg, and also directed the Viennese premiere of Iolanta on 22 March 1900.
