LA Opera: EUGENE ONEGIN on July 7th at 1 pm

A young and impassioned country girl, Tatiana (soprano Oksana Dyka), hastily writes a love letter to the brooding aristocrat Onegin (baritone Dalibor Jenis). She unwittingly sets off an unstoppable series of events, leaving Onegin forever regretting the love he so casually spurned.
 Join us on Saturday, July 7th, from 1 to 4:30 pm for our first broadcast of the season from LA Opera.
