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.
