Opera South East – Eugene Onegin Tchaikovsky
April 20, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - April 21, 2018 @ 9:30 pm
Opera South East are back after their fantastic production last year of ‘The Magic Flute’ with an opera based on Pushkin’s iconic verse novel. The definitive romantic Russian aristocrat caught between convention and boredom and the young Tatyana, who grows from sentimental adolescent into sophisticated woman. Tchaikovsky gives voice to the casualties of love, the victims in the battle between raw emotion and social convention.
This new production from director Fraser Grant sees the action set at the end of the 18th century in rural Russia moving forward to the glittering imperial aristocracy of St. Petersburg at the start of the 19th century.
