MARCH 23, 2018 Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin

with Sir George Solti, Dir. Royal Opera House / film by Petr Weigl 117” see below

It seems to me that I am truly gifted with the ability truthfully, sincerely, and simply to express the feelings, moods, and images suggested by a text. In this sense I am a realist and fundamentally a Russian. ~ Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin is a radiant example of Russian Lyric Opera. A deeply moving tale packed with big tunes, dances and a heart-stopping duel. As with his ballets, Tchaikovsky brings many symphonic elements to the music, plush orchestrations and highly melodic arias.

Onegin is a uniquely Russian opera with a universality that has made it globally popular. None of the characters are easy to associate with and yet the events and their actions ring horribly true. The piece provides opportunities for three great soloists as well as requiring top-drawer performances from the Chorus.
