- The MET: Eugene Onegin
05 Sat Oct 2013
The Peterborough Players presents Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin Anna Netrebko and Mariusz Kwiecien star as the lovestruck Tatiana and the imperious Onegin in Tchaikovsky’s fateful romance. Deborah Warner’s new production, directed by Fiona Shaw, set in the late 19th century, moves episodically from farmhouse to ballroom, with a powerful snowstorm providing the dramatic setting for the finale. Piotr Beczala is Lenski, Onegin’s friend turned rival. Russian maestro Valery Gergiev conducts. Eugene Onegin is a co-production of the Metropolitan Opera and English National Opera.
