The Mariinsky (Kirov Ballet) Theatre
lyric opera in three acts
Music: Pyotr Tchaikovsky
Production by Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier (2002)
Based on Pushkin's novel in verses entitled Eugene Onegin, which is known as the encyclopedia of Russian life, the plot tells about young provincial girl Tatyana who sincerely declares her love to the young man of high society who is bored in the rural guzzle. He rather coldly refuses her. Meeting her after some years, already married, he understands that he loves her, however, he entreats her in vain. Although she remembers and loves him still, the feeling of her duty and matrimonial fidelity outweighs her passion. Eugene Onegin is an unsurpassed sample of a lyrical opera in which Pushkin's poetry has harmoniously merged with the fine, heart-felt music full of intimate emotion and dramatic nature.
