Based on Pushkin’s masterpiece of Russian literature, Tchaikovsky’s great opera tells of the fated love between the innocent Tatyana and the worldweary cynic Eugene Onegin.
The opera includes the famous ‘letter scene’, a tour-deforce of the soprano repertoire, in which Tatyana declares her true love for Onegin, a love that is tragically rejected. The ensuing maelstrom of emotions ends in a duel between Onegin and his best friend, the poet, Lensky, which leaves Lensky dead. Years later, at the St Petersburg Ball, Onegin, by chance, meets Tatyana once again and realises his mistake, but now the married Tatyana is unable to accept Onegin’s love.
For their tenth year at The Tobacco Factory Theatre, Opera Project presents a delicious exploration of life, death, love, convention and passion with this lyrical masterpiece. The brilliant Australian baritone Grant Doyle sings the title role and Michael Bracegirdle (Cavaradossi, Tosca 2008) returns to take on Lensky. Sung in English, with orchestra, this promises to be an absolute highlight of the season.
