Sung in Russian with Japanese surtitles

To highlight the importance of Russian opera in the history of opera, Artistic Director of Opera ONO Kazushi is opening his second season with "Eugene Onegin". One of the most frequently performed work in Russian opera, this masterpiece brims with the lyricism of TCHAIKOVSKY, known for his brilliance in orchestral and ballet music. The piece is originally based on the poetic novel by Alexander PUSHKIN, depicting the misunderstanding between a man and a woman of the Imperial Russian aristocracy. This story of young people, the nihilistic intellectual Onegin and the dreamer Tatyana, confronted with love, despair and death, is woven throughout with the emotive music by TCHAIKOVSKY and will touch the hearts of all.

It is directed by Dmitry BERTMAN, the founder and artistic director of Helikon Opera in Moscow. Presenting a succession of Russian operas and other works from classic to modern, BERTMAN is the director who has nurtured the Helikon Opera into one of Moscow's leading theatres. His new production takes on the motif of "Eugene Onegin" as directed by Konstantin STANISLAVSKI, famed for his method of realism known as the "Stanislavski System", when he remodelled a rehearsal room in his own residence into "Onegin Hall" in 1922. Conductor Andryi YURKEVICH is from Ukraine and has been active all over Europe. The cast includes two Russian opera specialists: Vasily LADYUK, who has earned a name for himself playing Onegin at Bolshoi Theatre and around the world, and Evgenia MURAVEVA, who has achieved sensational success at Salzburger Festspiele.
