Programme Note


Tintomara is based on the event surrounding the murder of King Gustaf III at a masked ball in 1792. A mysterious young woman, Azouras Lazuli Tintomara La Tournerose, is used as a decoy in the despotic Baron Reuterholm’s plot to murder the king, and ends up falling victim herself to a treacherous bullet from a jealous admirer.
