Tchaikovsky's 'Eugene Onegin' with Schmutzhardt, Zechmeister, Jakubiak and Chang from Frankfurt
Tchaikovsky's 'Eugene Onegin' is an opera with a libretto organised by the composer and Konstantin Shilovsky, which very closely follows certain passages in Alexander Pushkin's novel in verse, retaining much of his poetry. Madame Larina and the nurse Filippyevna are sitting outside in the garden. They can hear Madame Larina's two daughters, Tatyana and her younger sister Olga, singing a love song. Madame Larina begins to reminisce about her own courtship and marriage. A group of peasants enter, and celebrate the harvest with songs and dances. Tatyana and Olga watch. Tatyana has been reading a romantic novel and is absorbed by the story; her carefree sister, on the other hand, wants to join in the celebrations. Performers:
