Eugene Onegin


83350-3Russia was everywhere in this beautiful Met Opera co-production with the English National Opera – in the largely Russian cast, in joyous energetic Russian folk dances, in evocative scrims of the Russian countryside, in familiar music by someone named Pyotr Tchaikovsky. Dmitri Hvorostovsky had to cancel, but Mariusz Kwiecień (an outlier from Poland) was more than adequate as the title character. Everyone was in top form, not least Anna Netrebko (from Krasnodar) as Tatiana. A few more performances in April.
