Eugene Onegin

Eugene Onegin

Eugene Onegin  De Nederlandse Opera  26-06-2011
Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
De Nederlandse Opera
Differently from the original final in Puskin's novel,the Opera Eugene Onegin written by the Russian composer Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky was tempted to overturn the final. On the last scene, Tatjiana, decides to surrender to the power of feelings she has for the young man, whom she had never really forgotten, instead of rejecting firmly Onegin's late attentions. However, the night before the debut, the tormented musician thought it over. Happiness is not of this world, definitely not of Tchaikovsky's creative and personal world.

Synopsis Eugene Onegin

On the Larin estate, Madame Larina reflects on the days before she married, when she loved another man. Now she is a widow with two daughters, Tatiana and Olga. Olga is being courted by their neighbour, the poet Lensky. He arrives unexpectedly, and with him a new visitor, Eugene Onegin, with whom Tatiana falls in love. Tatiana asks the maid, Filippyevna, to recount her of her first love and marriage. She stays up all night writing a love letter to Onegin and persuades the maid to get her grandson to deliver it the next day. He replies that he was flattered but that he cannot accept her love and can only offer a friendship.
