The mysterious, unwavering chant of the English horn, punctuated by notes from the bassoon and the clarinet follows its chromatic descent over 20 bars as if plunging into an unknown world - a world where Iolanta has lived in seclusion since her birth. She is unwittingly blind, since no one has the right to reveal the fact to her. This simple tale of collective denial at the court of Provence, as narrated by the Danish writer Henrik Hertz in his play King Rene's Daughter, was discovered by Tchaikovsky in 1883. However, moved beyond words by the presence of the young actress Elena Konstantinova Leshkovskaya in the title role, it would be another five years before the composer decided to transform it into an opera. The composer found inspiration for his opera in Danish playwright Henrik Hertz's work recounting the romantic story of Iolanta, the blind daughter of King Rene.
