Join us for an archival broadcast of Tchaikovsky’s fateful romance Eugene Onegin. Valery Gergiev conducts the performance from October 5th, 2013, which features soprano Anna Netrebko as the naive heroine Tatiana, baritone Mariusz Kwiecien as the aristocratic title character, and tenor Piotr Beczala as the poet Lenski. Mezzo-soprano Oksana Volkova sings the role of Tatiana’s sister, Olga, and Alexei Tanovitski sings Prince Gremin.
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.
