Tchaikovsky: Eugene Onegin

About the DVD

This staging by Robert Carsen of Tchaikovsky's popular romantic opera was broadcast live to cinemas worldwide from the Metropolitan Opera to great critical acclaim in February 2007. Renée Fleming and Dmitri Hvorostovsky star in Pushkin's tragic tale of unrequited love and their onstage chemistry made for some rave reviews.

Renée Fleming's Tatiana is a triumph, her gorgeous soprano voice, intense acting and precise characterization make the complex young woman come alive. Her "Letter Scene," in which the singer must reveal the innermost thoughts of a confused soul, is as good as it gets, as Fleming fully reveals the young woman's joyous hopes of requited love and also her fears of rejection.
