Sat, 22nd April, 2017 @ 17:55pm - 22:00pm£8 - £18
★★★★★”A Shy Teen-turned- Grande Dame heats up the Met’s Box Office. In Eugene Onegin ‘, Anna Netrebko’s subtle art proves a hot ticket” Observer
Tchaikovsky’s setting of Pushkin’s timeless verse novel is presented on the Met stage in Deborah Warner’s moving production, starring Anna Netrebko as Tatiana and Mariusz Kwiecien and Peter Mattei sharing the title role. Alexey Dolgov sings the role of Lenski, and Robin Ticciati conducts.
★★★★★“The first performance of Eugene Onegin at the Met this season, a revival of Deborah Warner’s 2011 London production, was remarkable in two ways. Anna Netrebko combined her vocal maturity and supreme acting to give us a complete “flesh and bones” character. Her Tatyana evolved in front of our eyes throughout the evening. A shy bookish girl in a rural estate blushes with joy and hope at her first encounter with her attractive neighbor, Onegin. Driven by passion and desire, she pens a letter confessing her love for him, regretting immediately after sending it. Her reaction to Onegin’s rejection was heartbreaking.” Backtrack
★★★★★”Tchaikovsky’s music depicts a range of emotion from self-doubt to ecstasy, and Netrebko was so gorgeously committed to the truth of the scene that it was easy to overlook the sheer beauty of her singing. Particularly delicious was her use of a firm mezzo-piano dynamic, perfectly audible throughout the theatre and yet feeling as intimate as a whisper” Observer
★★★★★“Given one of the most gorgeous melodies penned by Tchaikovsky in this opera, Mr Kocán excelled not only in his high notes that opened up in a luxurious and prolonged phrasing, but in his remarkable scaling of low notes at the end.”Backtrack
