Eugene Onegin at The Barns at Wolf Trap


Eugene Onegin

Pushkin’s sweeping novel comes vividly to life in Tchaikovsky’s masterful opera. Arrogant Onegin’s careless rejection of innocent Tatyana’s confession of love sets into motion a series of events ending in a fatal duel. This deeply moving Russian tale of love, rejection, and remorse is brimming with highly melodic arias and a sweeping score.
