Synopsis

  • Argument

    St. Petersburg, at the end of the 18th century. Olga and Tatyana are Madame Larina’s two daughters: the first is cheerful and in love with the poet Lensky, while the second is more of a melancholy dreamer. Tatyana falls for Eugene Onegin, a cold man who responds to her passion with disdain, even going so far as to court Olga. A terribly jealous Lensky challenges his friend Onegin to a duel, but it is Lensky who perishes. Years later, Onegin finally realizes that he loved Tatyana, but it is too late: she is now married to Prince Gremin, rejecting Onegin and turning away as he once did. Both enraged and in pain, Onegin is left alone, cursing the heavens.
