In this performance of Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin, Simon Keenlyside and Krassimira Stoyanova bring conviction and energy to the roles of the impulsive Onegin and the romantic Tatyana. When this production was staged at Covent Garden in 2012, The Independent described conductor Robin Ticciati as ‘inspired’ in his rendition of this exquisite score and also praised the ‘heartrending tenor’ of Pavol  Breslik (as Lensky).

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.
