Anna Netrebko and Mariusz Kwiecien star as the lovestruck Tatiana and the imperious Onegin in Tchaikovsky's fateful romance. Actress and director Fiona Shaw* will make her Met directorial debut. The production, set in the late 19th century, moves episodically from farmhouse to ballroom, with a powerful snowstorm providing the dramatic setting for the finale. Piotr Beczala is Lenski, Onegin's friend turned rival. Russian maestro Valery Gergiev conducts.

Eugene Onegin is a co-production of the Metropolitan Opera and English National Opera.

* Please note: Fiona Show will be replacing Deborah Warner who will be unable to direct her staging at the Met due to an unexpected surgical procedure and the anticipated recovery time
