About the performance

“The opera Eugene Onegin will never be successful, I know it in advance. I will never find artists who can meet my requirements even approximately. The bureaucracy, the routine on our stages, the nonsense of productions, the system of keeping the disabled, not giving way to youth — all that makes my opera almost impossible to stage… This opera is deprived of the future!”

The modern audience might find it hard to imagine that a year before the premiere Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky was so distressed about the coming fortune of his creation. The idea of writing an opera, based on “an encyclopaedia of Russian life” by Alexander Pushkin, was suggested to the composer by Yelizaveta Lavrovskaya, a singer and teacher at the Moscow Conservatory. Tchaikovsky wrote the opera quickly: just over six months passed from the origination of the idea (May-June 1877) to its realisation (the completion of the work was recorded on the 1st of February 1878).

Premiered on May 15, 2019.

Presented with two intervals.

Libretto by Pyotr Tchaikovsky and Konstantin Shilovsky based on the novel in verses of the same name by Alexander Pushkin

Synopsis

Act I

Scene 1

With her devoted servant Filippyevna, the widowed Madame Larina sits on the garden of her country estate. Her daughters, Olga and Tatyana, sing a love song that reminds the older women of days gone by. Peasants coming from the fields bring freshly cut hay for their mistress and celebrate the completion of the harvest with songs and dances. Olga taunts Tatyana for failing to enjoy the festivities. Pale and shy, Tatyana remains pensive and apart, wrapped in the fantasy of her beloved novels. As the peasants leave, the poet Lensky, Olga’s suitor, and his worldy friend Eugene Onegin arrive. When Madame Larina and Filippyevna enter the house, the four young people mingle, awkwardly at first. Then Lensky pours forth his love to Olga. Onegin, strolling with Tatyana, asks if she does not tire of her bucolic existence. Visibly upset by the handsome stranger, the girl answers with difficulty. As night falls, the two couples go in for dinner.
