EUGENE ONEGIN

“The evening belonged to Netrebko, who reinforced the heroine's pathos with limpid tone, expressive point, dynamic sensitivity and unexpected restraint.”

Financial Times

In this production Anna Netrebko stars as Tatiana, the naïve heroine from Tchaikovsky's fateful romance, opposite Mariusz Kwiecien who portrays the self-confident title character, in a much-admired interpretation he has sung in many of the world’s leading opera houses, and Piotr Beczala who reprises his acclaimed performance as Onegin’s friend-turned-rival, Lenski. Deborah Warner's new production, directed by Fiona Shaw, is set in the late 19th century and moves episodically from farmhouse to ballroom, with a powerful snowstorm providing the dramatic setting for the finale. Reviewing Warner’s production, the Sunday Telegraph praised its “mixture of haunting visual and emotional impact: cutting straight to the heart of the work, [Warner] shows how Onegin is simultaneously about two colliding Russian societies—rustic provincialism and cosmopolitan decadence—and three wasted lives.”
