Composed in 1878, Tchaikovsky’s lyric opera was one of the first of its kind to have dramatic music added and follows the story of a selfish hero and a young woman’s love. Based on the Pushkin novel, it portrays the life of Onegin, a dashing and worldly gentleman who comes to regret his blasé rejection of impressionable country girl, as well as his careless incitement of a fatal duel with his best friend. Grammy Award winner Ana María Martínez and Seattle Opera 2006 Artist of the Year Mariusz Kwiecien lead this richly layered piece at Chicago’s Civic Opera House.Buy Tickets
