Eugene Onegin (Russian w/e.s.t.) ENCORE - Metropolitan Opera
The beloved American soprano Renee Fleming joins with Russian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky for this broadcast of Tchaikovsky’s lyrical 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 gorgeous lighting of this strikingly minimal production. This production was originally broadcast to cinemas in 2007. This version has no intermission.
