In his first year as Musical Director of Valencia’s Palau de les Arts exciting, fast-rising young conductor Omer Meir Wellber scores a triumph with Tchaikovsky’s most beloved opera Eugene Onegin.

In Trelinski’s timeless production he leads a superb, first-class young cast headed by Artur Ruzinski as Onegin and Kristine Opolais as Tatyana.

Mariusz Trelinski, Polish filmmaker and theater director, has created a series of dream-like, surrealist tableaux of great suggestive beauty.

The clear lines of the production (premiered at Warsaw’s Teatr Wielki) are finely echoed by the slender musical design of Omer Meir Wellber – “A miracle of poetry” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung).

The “brilliant young music director” (The Sunday Times), who follows Lorin Maazel as musical head of Valencia’s Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia, transforms the orchestra into one of the opera’s protagonists, on an equal footing with “an ideally well-balanced vocal cast” (Die Welt).

Also forming part of the musical “dream team” are tenor Dmitri Korchak (Lensky), mezzo Lena Belkina (Olga) and bass Günther Groissböck (Gremin), as well as the orchestra and chorus of the Comunitat Valenciana.
