Experience a story of squandered romance and tragic honor when Michigan Opera Theatre presents Eugene Onegin. Performances of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s operatic masterpiece are on select dates from Saturday, Oct. 13 through Sunday, Oct. 21 at the magnificent Detroit Opera House.
Directed by Stephanie Havey, this new MOT production by Tomer Zvulun is co-produced with the Lyric Opera of Kansas City. The work will be sung in Russian with English supertitle translations.
Eugene Onegin premiered in Moscow in 1879. Known for its rich orchestration and beautiful melodies, “Onegin” is Tchaikovsky’s most beloved opera and the epitome of Russian Lyric Opera. Maestro Stephen Lord will conduct the Michigan Opera Theatre Orchestra.
