By WBJC Programming | Posted in Operafest | No Comments

Eugene Onegin
By Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

  • Language – Performed in Russian
  • Running Time – 3 hours 10 minutes including 1 intermission
c. Lyric Opera of Chicago

Intensely passionate drama set to some of opera’s most sweeping, soulful, and heartstoppingly beautiful music — that is Eugene Onegin. Tatiana is a lovesick country girl, and Onegin is the sophisticated young man who callously spurns her love before realizing, too late, what a mistake he’s made. Here is Pushkin’s profoundly human, hopelessly romantic, ultimately devastating story, elevated by Tchaikovsky’s richly layered and unabashedly expressive music. Find out why Eugene Onegin is beloved by opera audiences the world over.
