The passionate music of Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin brings Pushkin’s famous Russian novel to life. Tatyana, a quiet country girl, falls in love with Eugene Onegin, who is visiting with his friend Lensky. Tatyana writes an intense letter of love to him, but Onegin spurns her. At a ball in Tatyana’s home, Onegin pursues Olga, Lensky’s betrothed. Lensky challenges Onegin to a duel, and is killed.
 
 
 
Years later, Onegin returns to St. Petersburg to attend a ball held by Prince Gremin, who has married Tatyana. Onegin is struck by her beauty and declares his love for her, but this time it is her turn to reject him.
 
 
 
Moscow State Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre
The Moscow State Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre (MAMT) was founded in 1941 when two companies directed by the legendary reformers of twentieth-century theatre Konstantin Stanislavsky and Vladimir Nemirovich-Danchenko merged: the Stanislavsky Opera Theatre and the Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre.
 
The new theatre followed the artistic principles of its founders, who applied the system of the Moscow Art Theatre to opera and ballet. Both Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko rejected the current conception of opera as 'costume concert'. They wanted to bring it closer to drama and comedy, revealing the main idea of the plot through psychologically motivated action.
