Three romantic heroes each with a solitary destiny: Tatiana, a Romanesque young woman seeking absolution, Onegin, a distant dandy hiding emptiness under affected haughtiness, and Lenski, abandoned by his literary idol.

Between these three, barren affections presage the inexorable social ruin. All the resources of the Bolshoi Theatre of Moscow are brought to bear to ensure this opera performance is exceptional evening of theatre and song: a vocal line-up of the highest order with notably the baritone Mariusz Kwiecien and the Bolshoi Orchestra and Chorus conducted by Alexander Vedernikov. With a stage setting as sombre as it is effective - a great dining table appears in the middle of a salon - the director Dmitri Tcherniakov separates two different worlds and lends the drama a clarity rarely reached. The exceptional quality of this production, and the great success encountered by its first edition, inevitably led to the remastering in high-definition of this program to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its original release.

History

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.
