Portland Opera Presents Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin says
Best friends destined to duel. Young lovers destined to part. EUGENE ONEGIN is the LA BOHEME of Russia. This is a new production, directed Kevin Newbury, who directed GALILEO GALILEI for Portland Opera in 2012.

When Tatiana’s world is first interrupted by Onegin, it is the early 1980s. By the time she meets him again in St. Petersburg it is 1990 – a year after the fall of communism. This setting raises the stakes for the two young lovers and their friends, and it provides a modern context for Tchaikovsky’s “seven lyrical scenes,” with themes that truly are universal and contemporary.

Sung in Russian with projected English texts.
