Eugene Onegin

Tchaikovsky's best loved opera, Eugene Onegin tells the story of a cynical young man who thinkd himself superior to the simple country family who are his hosts.

When Tatyna, the shy sensitive daughter of the house declares her love for him, he dismisses her  feelings  and flirts with her sister, causing a quarrel which leads to a deadly duel and the death  of his best friend.

Years later, Onegin meets Tatyana again, but this time at the  top of St Petersburg society, where she is the much admired wife of an eminent general.

Onegin, realising his mistake, protests his love for Tatyana, but she refuses to leave the husband she respects for the only true love of her life.

 

For their performances as Onegin and Tatyana, David Palmer and Heather Heighway received the NODA awards for  Best  Male and Female performers in a Musical for 2016.

The chorus also received rave reviews for their performances and poignant singing -  raising "hairs on the back of the neck"

Eugene Onegin April 2015

 

“A spine chilling sound”

“The hairs on the back of my neck stood on end”

“Such beautiful music and such a range of emotions from this talented amateur company”

 

The audience’s response has been unanimous for this, our most ambitious and challenging production to date.  

Tchaikovsky's opera, based on a story by Pushkin, Russia's greatest writer, calls for a high standard of singing and acting from soloists and chorus alike.

Because the opera was double cast, more than half of the company had solo roles. 

The beautiful costumes and impressive choreography brought the great celebration scenes to life, while the intimacy of the settings and the clear diction of the singers brought out the drama with great clarity.
