Eugen Onegin

Eugen Onegin

Production: Falk Richter
Stage design: Katrin Hoffmann
Costumes: Martin Kraemer

Together with Pique Dame, which was written later, Eugen Onegin is one of the two undeniable music theatre masterpieces of Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Premièred in Moscow in 1879, the opera tells the story of the world-weary Onegin, with whom Tatyana falls in love, but her feelings are not reciprocated. Too late Onegin realizes that Tatyana embodies the meaning and intensity of his life. Tchaikovsky's work - based on a novel by Pushkin - reflects the clash in Russian culture between the "modern" city of St. Petersburg - symbolized by Onegin - and the more kindhearted "Mother Russia", represented by Tatyana.
