Jewgeni Onegin

Theater Musiktheater
In the organizer's words:
Barrie Kosky stages Tchaikovsky's melancholy drama about the hopes, longings and failures of four young people who must realize in the end that happiness was close enough to touch: When the poet Lensky visits his fiancée Olga and brings along his mysterious friend Yevgeny Onegin, Olga's introverted sister Tatyana is smitten. But Onegin harshly rejects Tatyana. Years later, he meets her again - now it is she who refuses to listen to his sudden plea for love ...With Yevgeny Onegin, Tchaikovsky achieved his breakthrough as an opera composer and at the same time made a unique contribution to modern music theater. Barrie Kosky's production features an opulent stage design that transports the poetry of the characters and their tragedy into the vastness of a natural space. Set to Tchaikovsky's unforgettable music, Yevgeny Onegin presents itself as a "finely nuanced psychogram of young people who are just learning for the first time what irreversible decisions are."
