In the midst of a personal life crisis, Tchaikovsky produced his finest opera whose characters mirrored the composer's own torment. Onegin, an arrogant aristocrat, spurns the youthful infatuation of Tatyana only to learn years later the true cost of his heartless behavior. Pushkin, Russia's greatest poet, created the story of two characters swept up in a conflict between honor and enduring love. Coupled with Tchaikovsky's lush musical score, Eugene Onegin is Russian to the core yet speaks powerfully to audiences everywhere.
