Tchaikovsky: Eugene Onegin (Ticciati)
Recorded live at the Royal Opera House, London, February 2013
Running Time: c.154 mins
Content Type: Movie
Kasper Holten's inaugural production for The Royal Opera gives eloquent voice to the sense of loss and regret at the heart of Tchaikovsky's lyrical Eugene Onegin, based on Pushkin's great verse novel, Holten makes imaginative use of doubles to suggest the paths taken, or not taken, by the two lead characters.
Simon Keenlyside and Krassimira Stoyanova bring conviction and energy to the roles of the impulsive Onegin and the romantic Tatyana. When this production was staged at Covent Garden in 2012, The Independent described conductor Robin Ticciati as 'inspired' in his rendition of this exquisite score and also praised the 'heartrending tenor' of Pavel Breslik.
