|A decadent night at the Russian opera: Grange Park Opera Rising Stars in Eugene Onegin|
|Eugene Onegin, a lyric opera by Pyotr Tchaikovsky, is based on Pushkin’s novel of the same name, converted into an operatic libretto by Konstantin Shilovsky. It tells the tale of a selfish hero, Onegin, who rejects the outburst of love from the young Tatyana and instead flirts with her older sister, Olga, who is engaged to his best friend, Lensky. This leads to a duel, in which Lensky is killed. Onegin, horrified by what he has done, leaves Russia and when he returns years later he finds that Tatyana is married to Prince Gremin, a battle-scarred soldier.|
