Evgeni Onegin

Gulbenkian Orchestra and Choir

Event Slider

The reflection of an admitted passion of Lorenzo Viotti, the Principal Conductor of the Gulbenkian Orchestra brings opera back to Gulbenkian Music. After the resounding success in the 2018-19 season with Romeo and Juliet, this time the chosen piece is Tchaikovsky’s Evgeni Onegin, with staging by Kristiina Helin. Tchaikovsky adapted Pushkin’s homonymous novel to opera, focused on star-crossed lovers Onegin and Tatyana, as well as the consequences and excessive acts triggered by sentimental rapture.
