Event Archive - VO: EUGENE ONEGIN: Vancouver Opera

Sat. November 29th 2008 Queen Elizabeth Theatre (All Ages)
Tickets at:
The Vancouver Opera proudly presents this new production of the Tchaikovsky opera based on Pushkin's epic poem. A sumptuous ball in St. Petersburg. A dusty farmers' dance in the Russian countryside. Joyous raptures of love. A deadly duel. Stark opposites frame Tchaikovsky's visually magnificent and profoundly emotional drama. Tatyana is a shy young country woman who soars when she meets the man of her romantic dreams. Eugene Onegin is the urban aristocrat who rejects her. But Onegin's callousness twists on him, leaving him filled with regret and despair. Tchaikovsky's deeply sensitive portrayal of the tumultuous inner worlds of Pushkin's characters is a supreme achievement, matched by his superb orchestral score and his gorgeous music for both soloists and chorus. In Russian with English surtitles.
