Eugene Onegin - Accentus English version

Eugene Onegin

Program

Piotr Ilitch Tchaïkovski
Eugene Onegin

The true classics are an endless source of fresh interpretation. Tchaikovsky’s great opera, and flagship of Romanticism, Eugene Onegin, is no exception. Marie-Eve Signeyrole transposes the action to the end of the 1990s, setting it in kommunalka, the communal flats that were a legacy of the Bolshevik Revolution. Thus, the celebrated duel morphs into a game of Russian roulette. A bold interpretation that earned critical acclaim when it was premiered at the National Opera House in Montpellier in 2014.
