Eugene Onegin
Posted: March 13th, 2008

American soprano Renée Fleming joins Russian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky for this broadcast of Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous and lyrical adaptation of Alexander Pushkin’s iconic text EUGENE ONEGIN. The sweeping dramatic arc of this opera — youthful longing, rejection, regret, a desperate plea that comes too late — is perfectly mirrored in Tchaikovsky’s achingly beautiful music and in the stunning lighting of this strikingly minimal production.

EUGENE ONEGIN airs May 25, 2008 for SundayArts.
