Love is Blind. Hindsight is 20/20.
With this simple recipe for regret, Tchaikovsky turned Pushkin’s classic Russian novel into one of the world’s most beloved operas. Awash in aristocratic formality and extravagance, Onegin’s youthful disillusionment snowballs into a tragic love story saturated with drama, death, and desperation. Yet, along this cold, dark descent, Tchaikovsky never fails to flood us in famed arias, renowned ballroom dance numbers, and unforgettable moments.
Sung in Russian with English subtitles.
