Content Type: Movie
Described by Tchaikovsky as 'lyric scenes', Eugene Onegin receives a spectacular reinterpretation from the Norwegian director Stefan Herheim. His productions create controversy and excitement around Europe, and here he takes Pushkin's story of illusion, disaffection and frustrated love and places the protagonists - world-weary Onegin and naïve, passionate Tatyana - in a triple temporal perspective, referencing the theatrical present, the period of the work's composition and the pageant of Russia's history.
Mariss Jansons, renowned for his mastery of Tchaikovsky's symphonies, conducts this performance from The Amsterdam Music Theatre.
Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true surround sound.
