Eugene Onegin - Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin is a radiant example of Russian Lyric Opera. A deeply moving tale packed with big tunes, dances and a heart-stopping duel, Eugene Onegin sees the legendary Russian composer bring many symphonic elements into the music, conjuring plush orchestrations and highly melodic arias.
