Eugene Onegin

This literary Russian romance is brought to life in an achingly beautiful tale of longing, remorse, and love unfulfilled.

When sensitive Tatyana bares her soul in a love letter to the dashing Eugene Onegin, he coldly rejects her and flirts with her sister, resulting in a deadly duel with his trusted friend, Lensky. Years later, Onegin returns to Russia, tortured by guilt and remorse. Conductor Steven White and Director Rosetta Cucchi both return to Opera Omaha, transporting literary Russian romance to life in this achingly beautiful tale of longing, remorse, and love unfulfilled - with breathtaking music by Tchaikovsky (The Nutcracker, Swan Lake). Alexander Elliott (2018 Pagliacci, 2017 Cosi fan tutte) returns to Opera Omaha in the title role of Eugene Onegin with Lauren Michelle making her Orpheum Theater debut as Tatyana. Music and libretto by Pyotr Ilyich TchaikovskyBased on the novel by Alexander Pushkin
