Tchaikovsky | Eugene Onegin

  • Deutsche Oper 35 Bismarckstraße Berlin, Berlin, 10627 Germany (map)

EUGEN ONEGIN, alongside PIQUE DAME Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky's best-known opera, is also one of his finest stage works of all. The search for a suitable material had been difficult, for he had precise ideas: "I do not want anything that is part of the so-called Grand Opera. I look for an intimate but powerful drama built on the conflict that really touches me. At the same time I do not disdain the fantastic element; for it knows no obstacles, because the realm of fantasy knows no bounds. "[Letter of January 14, 1878]
