It’s Tchaikovsky’s best opera and the most popular Russian opera ever written. Tchaikovsky is famous for The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, and The 1812 Overture, but he also wrote the romantic and lyrical opera Eugene Onegin. It’s a love story, but can love overcome youthful foolishness.
The Story: The self-centered Onegin carelessly rejects the love of an adolescent girl, Tatyana. When she grows into a beautiful woman, he regrets his decision. Can he rekindle the relationship even though Tatyana is now married? Join Onegin and Tatyana, and their yearning for lost love, as they journey from Russia’s rural country life to their lives as part of the imperial aristocracy of Saint Petersburg, and see if love triumphs.
