Tchaikovsky’s dramatic and passionate opera of unrequited love.
Eugene Onegin is unimpressed with naive Tatyana when they first meet, and her impetuous letter of love to him prompts a cruelly dismissive response. But the tables are turned when they meet again after she has become the sophisticated and beautiful wife of Prince Gremin; Onegin’s attempts to gain her love are now thrown back at him. If the future happiness of Lensky and Olga at first seems certain, Onegin’s intervention leads only to a duel and death.
Sung in Russian with English surtitles.
