Eugene Onegin, that uncommonly beautiful opera, is actually not an opera at all. Tchaikovsky himself avoided the word “opera,” speaking instead of “lyrical scenes.” But the music – we’re talking about Tchaikovsky after all – can certainly turn dramatic at times. It’s winter, and two friends, now enemies, take aim at each other in a duel – scenes like these are guaranteed to give opera fans goosebumps. Tchaikovsky isn’t portraying operatic heroes here, but bringing real people to life.
In Russian with German and English surtitles.
Sponsors: Klaus and Kirsten Mangold
Performance ends at approximately 09:45 P.M.
