As The Countess - Queen of Spades OPERA HOLLAND PARK
Quite the most riveting of all the principals was Rosalind Plowright's cantankerous Countess, creeping painfully around the stage on ebony sticks of unequal length, banging them imperiously. She was indeed the queen on that final, fateful card. When she opened up to full throttle, her mezzo was chillingly sepulchral, and with fawning courtiers everywhere except the bedroom there was no doubting who ruled the roost.
