Eugene Onegin (Opera Australia) Tickets

Sydney
A day in summer, a night in suspense. A letter between friends. A bullet. Eugene Onegin is the journey from what could be to what might have been. In between lies the tragedy. Danish director Kasper Holten's intriguing new production portrays Tatyana and Onegin as two dreamers whose lives drift and dance around each other, at the mercy of capricious breezes. How is it that a youthful crush becomes a matter of life and death? Kasper Holten is a self-confessed opera nerd. Smitten by Carmen at nine, he spent his youth building opera houses from Lego, and by the age of twelve had mounted his first Ring Cycle, featuring a distinguished cast of puppets and complete with surtitles. Now Holten, who turns 40 this year, holds one of the key positions in the world of opera: artistic director of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Eugene Onegin is an exploration of memory, of the aching nostalgia for what might have been. This production creates layers of reminiscence and regret using some ingenious stage devices which have challenged and delighted audiences. Whatever you make of his unique approach, Holten's directorial debut with Opera Australia brings a devastingly handsome production to our shores, and a devastatingly handsome cast including Nicole Car as Tatyana Konstantin Gorny as Prince Gremin and, ni his Australian debut, Slovak baritone Dalibor Jenis as Onegin. Performed in Russian with English surtitles.
