About Eugene Onegin

Tatyana is a dreamer, lost in romantic stories. When the dashing Eugene Onegin walks into her world, she feels her own love story beginning. But Onegin rejects her passion. Eugene Onegin is the journey from what could be to what might have been. Between lies tragedy.

Kasper Holten’s “hyper-intelligent, deeply moving production” (Limelight) brings memory to the fore. Through flashback, Tatyana and Onegin watch their younger selves make choices that will haunt their lives. As memories pile up on stage, the effect is devastating.

Nicole Car reprises her astonishing performance as Tatyana. This is the role that made her a star, both at home and abroad. She performs opposite her husband, Etienne Dupuis, in a pairing sure to be rich with chemistry.

Carlo Montanaro conducts one of Tchaikovsky’s most celebrated works. The Romantic score adds layers of emotion to Pushkin’s tale of unrequited love.

In restless youth,

adolescent gloom

she was waiting…

but for whom?

He loves her not,

he loves her! Yet

too late, too long,

regret, regret.

Co-production with the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London and Fondazione Teatro Regio, Turin and Opera Australia.
