“Eugene Onegin” Opera

To highlight the importance of Russian opera in the history of opera, New National Theatre Tokyo’s Artistic Director of Opera, Kazushi Ono, is opening his second season with “Eugene Onegin.” One of the most frequently performed works in Russian opera, this masterpiece brims with the lyricism of Tchaikovsky, known for his brilliance in orchestral and ballet music. The piece is originally based on the poetic novel by Alexander Pushkin, depicting the misunderstanding between a man and a woman of the Imperial Russian aristocracy. This story of two young people, the nihilistic intellectual Onegin and the dreamer Tatyana, confronted with love, despair and death, is woven throughout with emotive music sure to touch the hearts of all.
