We continue our mainstage productions with an epic Russian masterpiece. Tatyana is introduced to the dashing Onegin and immediately falls in love. He coldly rejects her. His choice to flirt with Olga, fiancée of his friend Lensky, results in a heart-stopping duel between the two. Years later, Onegin realizes he loves Tatyana, however it is too late. Escape into Tchaikovsky’s beautiful soaring arias and orchestral music.
Expect to see a new Calgary Opera production of this classic.
Thank you to BMO for being the Production Sponsor for Eugene Onegin
