Acclaimed English director Deborah Warner’s new production of Tchaikovsky’s most popular opera is directed by her longtime collaborator Fiona Shaw and conducted by Valery Gergiev. Anna Netrebko reprises her company role debut as Tatiana, the naïve heroine of Pushkin’s classic novel. Mariusz Kwiecien portrays the self-confident title character, in a much-admired interpretation he has sung in many of the world’s leading opera houses, and Piotr Beczala reprises his acclaimed performance as Onegin’s friend-turned-rival, Lenski.
