Tchaikovsky’s most famous opera, a setting of Pushkin’s timeless verse novel, is a deeply moving tale of love, rejection, jealousy and loss. Tatyana, a country girl, falls for the dashing society bachelor, Onegin, pouring out her love for him in an impassioned letter. Onegin’s cold response leads to a tragic chain of events that affects all those closest to him.
