Peter Weigl’s beautiful film evokes superbly this most atmospheric of operas, while Sir Georg Solti captures both the passion and subtlety of Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score. The golden-voiced Teresa Kubiak sings the innocent Tatiana, Stuart Burrows is the ill-fated Lenski, and Bernd Weikl is Eugene Onegin, whose arrival is destined to change everybody’s lives.

Peter Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin

Tchaikovsky’s most successful opera is based on Alexander Pushkin’s verse novel of the same name, one of the central masterpieces of Russian literature. Subtitled “Lyrical Scenes” by the composer, Eugene Onegin had its premiere in 1879 in Moscow, performed by students of the conservatory. The first full professional production was seen at the Bolshoi Theater two years later. The Met’s 2013–14 season opens with a new staging of Eugene Onegin directed by Deborah Warner and conducted by Valery Gergiev.
