A joint-production by Bloomsbury Opera and St Andrew's Opera sung in English with a modern translation by David Lloyd-Jones and accompanied by a chamber orchestra. Conducted by Jessica Cottis (as seen on TV's Maestro).
Tchaikovsky’s 1879 opera is based on Alexander Pushkin’s verse-novel, a classic of Russian literature. Eugene Onegin, a St Petersburg dandy, initially rejects the love of a romantic country girl, Tatyana. He carelessly provokes a fatal duel with his best friend and travels abroad in remorse. Returning to Russia he realises his love for Tatyana when it is too late.
