Eugene Onegin opera at Edinburgh International Festival, UK
Edinburgh, Scotland, UK. 14 August 2019. Preview performance of Tchaikovsky’s opera Eugene Onegin by the Komische Oper Berlin in the Festival Theatre as part of the Edinburgh International Festival.
Komische Oper Berlin return to the International Festival for Tchaikovsky’s best-loved opera, based on Alexander Pushkin’s classic verse novel. Tchaikovsky’s heart-breaking love story uses the author’s poetry to create lyrical scenes that contrast the austerities of country life with the excesses and opulence of the Russian imperial court.
