The remaining performances of Eugene Onegin are sold out.
Skylark Opera Theatre and TMORA present Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin in a perfect pairing of outstanding Minnesota-based performers and a venue that will immerse you in the action of this special production.
Gary Briggle is bringing his creative talents and artistic directing skills to Skylark Opera Theatre in an adaptation of Eugene Onegin. Gary’s adaptation gets to the essence of this very grand chamber opera revolving around a quartet of four teenagers–the aloof dandy, Onegin; the impressionable country girl, Tatyana; her giddy sister Olga; and Olga’s fiancé, the poetaster, Lenski. For Gary, “the psychological details captured in Tchaikovsky’s music, the mood and character rather than a mechanical plot are where the real drama lies in Eugene Onegin.” In 110 bracing minutes of this production, this adaptation will bring you to “the heart of the matter.” It is intended to move you deeply and perhaps change the way you experience this opera.
