Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin is a radiant example of Russian Lyric Opera. A deeply moving tale packed with big tunes, dances and a heart-stopping duel. As with his ballets, Tchaikovsky brings many symphonic elements to the music, plush orchestrations and highly melodic arias. Onegin is a uniquely Russian opera with a universality that has made it globally popular. None of the characters are easy to associate with and yet the events and their actions ring horribly true.

Cosi Fan Tutte, a comic tale of love tested by deception and seduction. The title, literally translated, “thus do they all” suggests that women are easily seduced and quick to fly from the arms of one love to another. The opera was a great success in its day, but for most of the nineteenth through the first half of the twentieth century, its subject matter was deemed too racy for public consumption. Since that time, it has returned to the standard repertoire and, according to recent tabulations, is the eleventh most popular opera being performed today. Full info
