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.

Libretto by Pyotr Tchaikovsky and Konstantin Shilovsky based on Alexander Pushkin’s novel in verses of the same name

Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin have long ago broken all records for opera production longevity. And now the Bolshoi is about to offer our regenerated Russian society new interpretations of this masterpiece, embracing all recent developments in theatre and musicological thought. To work out new aesthetic principles for the stage treatment of Russian opera classics - is a colossal undertaking for which the Bolshoi Theatre has been preparing itself for many a year.

The new Eugene Onegin is more than a mechanical substitute of a new for an old production. The basic idea of the project is to return to the musical source, the composer’s initial conception, which he managed to realize at the Maly Theatre 1879 premiere of his lyrical scenes. "I will never give this opera to the Imperial Theatre Directorate, before it has been seen at the Conservatoire. I wrote it for the Conservatoire because it is not the routine and convention of a large stage, with its meaningless, if sumptuous productions, that I need here…" (From Pyotr Ilych Tchaikovsky’s letters to K. Altman).

The man responsible for this new, virtually chamber production of Tchaikovsky’s opera is Dmitri Tcherniakov, whose large scale opera productions have garnered many prizes. At the Bolshoi, Tcherniakov continues to develop the other trend in his staging stylistics, to which he put a start in his previous production for the Theatre’s New Stage - Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress.
