In a fit of youthful passion, Tatiana bares her soul to the mysterious Eugene Onegin, setting in motion an epic drama of love and regret. Featuring Tchaikovsky's trademark dances and irresistible melodies, Eugene Onegin is the composer's operatic masterpiece.
Baritone Hyung Yun (Carmen, 2009) stars in the title role, having won over critics and audiences alike in recent Madison appearances. Soprano Maria Kanyova, unforgettable in Madison Opera's Madama Butterfly (2008), sings the role of Tatiana, and tenor Scott Ramsay debuts as Vladimir Lenski. Candace Evans (Carmen, 2009) directs, and Madison Opera Artistic Director John DeMain leads the full forces of the Madison Opera Chorus and Madison Symphony Orchestra in this company premiere.
