Your question is a bit difficult to work out, if you are looking for the name of the opera (romanized) in Russian it is: Pikovaya Dama, but the character is always referred to as the Countess, she has no particular name.  Below is a link to the history of the Opera and the actual name in Russian (non-romanized) as well as the character list and the names of the singers who played the role of the countess.  Hope that is helpful!
