About Eugene Onegin
Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin is Russian Lyric Opera at its finest – based on the plot of Pushkin’s verse novel, Eugene Onegin features an emotional tale packed with breathtaking music, choreography, and a duel that will render the audience speechless. Tchaikovsky, as always, brings many symphonic elements to Eugene Onegin including lavish orchestrations and stunning arias in what he described as “seven lyrical scenes”.

The performance will last approximately 3 hours, including 1 intermission.

Sung in Russian with English SURTITLES
