She loved him at first sight. But Onegin, an aristocrat obsessed with appearances, could never be happy with a country girl like Tatyana. Or so he thought.

Emotions run high in Tchaikovsky’s drama Eugene Onegin, based on Alexander Pushkin’s deeply human story.  Gorgeous sweeping melodies melt the heart, making this one of opera’s most romantic masterpieces—from Tatyana’s ardent letter scene to the intense final duet as Tatyana and Onegin fight for their emotional lives.

Libretto by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky and Konstantin S. Shilovsky
Sung in Russian with English supertitles
