Great Performances at the Met: Eugene Onegin
Fri., Jan. 17, @ 9pm on CET
Mon., Jan. 20, @ 7pm on CET Arts
Anna Netrebko and Mariusz Kwiecien star as the love-struck Tatiana and the imperious Onegin in Tchaikovsky's fateful romance. Deborah Warner's new production, directed by Fiona Shaw, is set in the late 19th century and moves episodically from farmhouse to ballroom, with a powerful snowstorm providing the dramatic setting for the finale. Piotr Beczala is Lenski, Onegin's friend turned rival, Lenski.
