When Tatyana, a young country girl with a penchant for romance stories, meets the sophisticated and cynical Eugene Onegin, she falls in love at first sight. He turns her down - but when the two have a chance meeting years later, Onegin is astonished by the poised and confident woman Tatyana has become, and realizes he may have made a mistake. Will Tatyana return his love? Or will his earlier actions come back to haunt him?

Tchaikovsky’s music meets Pushkin’s tale of self absorption, self discovery, and pride driven past the point of no return in this tour-de-force. The opera is sung in Russian with English subtitles.
