Eugene Onegin

Guildford Opera return to the stage this autumn with their production of Tchaikovsky’s best-known opera, Eugine Onegin. When Onegin arrives at her family’s country estate with his friend Lensky, bookish teenager Tatyana is impressed by his air of sophistication. Impulsively, she pours her heart out to him in a letter but when the sophisticated Onegin rejects her impassioned declaration of love the fall-out leads to broken friendship, tragic death and bitter regret. Years later, they meet again in St. Petersburg and are confronted with a devastating moment of truth. In a timeless story of innocence and experience, Tchaikovsky’s haunting score captures all the poignancy and drama of Pushkin’s great lyric poem. Tatyana’s emotional and intense ‘Letter song’ is just one of the celebrated arias that stand alongside folk songs and exuberant dance tunes in a work combining the spirit of its age with the never-changing story of love and human frailty.
They will be singing the opera in English and are accompanied by a chamber orchestra.
Wednesday Nov 30 @7.30pm , Friday Dec 1 @7.30pm and Saturday Dec 2 @6.30pm. Tickets, £23 on Wednesday, £25 on Friday and Saturday. Concessions and U18's £12
