Everyone has regrets, or those “what if” moments. How different would life be had you chosen another path, the road not taken?
Tchaikovsky explores this theme of love lost, found, and the one that got away in the lush, romantic, and beautifully Russian opera Eugene Onegin. This new production takes its cues from the poet Robert Frost and the musical language of Pushkin’s novel, telling the story of a brash young man who makes bold statements and bolder mistakes, only to find that perhaps happiness was in front of him the whole time.
“What is stirring in the depths of my cold and slothful heart? Vexation, vanity or, once again, that preoccupation of youth – love?”
A co-production of Lyric Opera of Kansas City, Hawaii Opera Theatre, Seattle Opera, and Michigan Opera Theatre
Performed in Russian with English supertitles
