Eugene Onegin
Washington National Opera

Pushkin’s sweeping novel comes to vivid life in Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece. Young Tatiana confesses her devotion to the worldly Onegin, but his cold refusal devastates her. Years later, when Tatiana matures, it is Onegin who begs for her love. Will Tatiana embrace the man she once longed for? Or will Onegin forever be the victim of his own bitter decision?

More than 30 years have passed since WNO last staged this dramatic story of unrequited love, and now a visually stunning production marks its return. Complete with lush period costumes, majestic ballroom scenes, and a deadly duel, Eugene Onegin is a provocative tale of rejection and regret, exploring a society divided between rural austerity and aristocratic extravagance.
