Notes and Editorial Reviews

Also available on Blu-ray

Kasper Holten's inaugural production as Director of Opera for The Royal Opera returns to Pushkin's verse novella to reveal the shadows of memory which haunt Tchaikovsky's lyric tragedy. Using doubles to suggest the paths taken, or not taken, by its two impulsive protagonists, Holten gives eloquent voice to the loss and regret that lies at the heart of Eugene Onegin. Simon Keenlyside and Krassimira Stoyanova bring both experience and dynamic energy to the pair of protagonists, while the youthful, 'heartrending' tenor of Pavol Breslik and the idiomatic sweep of Robin

 superb February 27, 2016 By thomas f. (Fishertown, PA) See All My Reviews "I loved the unique way this was staged using doubles of Onegin and Tatiana. It really works. The singing was just fabulous. I highly recommend it. Buy the Blu Ray. Great sound and picture. Really great extras. There is another one with Stoyanova that is also very good. You might want to purchase that one too."
