Partake in Fabio Luisi’s mastery of opera and a stellar cast of handpicked soloists in Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, a Russian lyric opera filled with celebratory tunes, an infectious waltz, passion-soaked arias, plush orchestration and even a dramatic pistol duel.
Based on the poetry of Pushkin, the story is about two friends who fall into a jealous argument at a dance over the young and beautiful Tatyana, ultimately challenging each other to a duel. Onegin is victorious, but runs into Tatyana years later and discovers that she has married Prince Gremin.
Onegin writes Tatyana a love letter and demands a meeting, at which Tatyana acknowledges the reciprocal love but ultimately chooses to honor her promise to Gremin. She flees the stage in tears and Onegin is left alone.
