Tatyana, a bookish country girl, pours out her love for Onegin, a brilliant and glamorous bachelor. Setting off an inexorable and tragic chain of events, the pain and loss are reflected in some of Tchaikovsky’s most haunting and beautiful music.

Enjoy Garsington Opera’s free outdoor relay, in which former RSC Artistic Director, Michael Boyd, brings Tchaikovsky’s fateful romance to life. Hear some of our professional singers live alongside local young performers.

This will be a relaxed performance with activities for younger audience members planned throughout the afternoon screening.

*Get involved and discover opera up close and personal!

Sung in Russian with English subtitles.
