Eugene Onegin at the Orpheum

“Eugene Onegin,” a 150-year-old Russian opera is a Tchaikovsky production for the ages. Currently being staged at the Metropolitan Opera and the end of Opera Omaha’s 2021-2022 season, it transcends the evocative nature of unrequited love. This production of “Onegin,” was set as a 1950’s memory play- a look back on the past and a reflection of what could have been, a reflection of decisions, regret, romance and ultimately ruin.
