Pytor Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s one-act fairy tale opera Iolanta began as a companion piece to The Nutcracker. It is familiar to Russian audiences, but is only now becoming popular outside of Russia. Tri-Cities Opera has chosen it to inaugurate the recently renovated Savoca-Hibbitt Hall of the Opera Center on Clinton St. in Binghamton.  Performed in Russian with English supertitles, it features soprano Abigail Rethwisch in the title role.
