Tchaikovsky Eugene Onegin
Love. Passion. Heartbreak.
Far away in the rural idyll of the Russian countryside, the young Tatyana dreams of a different life, eagerly diving into the dramatic worlds of the heroines in all her books.
The arrival of the glamorous Eugene Onegin from cosmopolitan Moscow presents Tatyana with the chance for a new life – and she pours all her passion and love into one fateful letter.
Through sweeping melodies and raw emotion, Tchaikovsky’s music sees the tragedy of Pushkin’s tale unfold in one unparalleled masterpiece. We welcome to the stage Jonathan McGovern in the titular role, opposite Natalia Tanasii in the role of Tatyana in this revival of Michael Boyd (Pelléas et Mélisande, 2017 and Don Giovanni, 2019) and Tom Piper’s acclaimed 2016 production conducted by Douglas Boyd.
