highlights from Eugen Onegin (Tchaikovsky's opera about youthful feelings & decisions , CD)

£5.99

Product description

The fifth, and quite possibly the best-loved, of Pyotr Tchaikovsky's (1840-1893) eleven published operas, "Eugen Onegin" is an opera concerning powerful youthful feelings and decisions, and is based on compatriot Alexander Pushkin's novel of the same name. It certainly gave Pyotr the freedom, to dwell on more everyday, authentic experiences within the operatic framework, unlike the grand narratives of epic proportions, that otherwise dominated operatic storylines in the 1870s ; first love, lost love, jealousy and regret are all there ...

The action is set in and around St Petersburg in the 1820s. When Tatyana is introduced to the dashing, unconventional Onegin, she believes that he is the hero of her dreams. He coldly rejects her. Bored, he flirts with her sister Olga, outraging Lensky, Olga’s fiancé and Onegin’s only friend.

Lensky challenges Onegin to a duel, at which he loses his life. Onegin travels the world in an attempt to escape his guilt. Eventually he returns to Russia and finds Tatyana has become the elegant wife of Prince Gremin. He is overcome, and begs her to return his love. Though she still loves him, Tatyana refuses to break her vow to her husband.
