Eugene Onegin by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
September 30, October 4 and 6 (7:30 pm) and October 8 (2:00 pm)
Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts – 1601 Broadway KCMO 64108
With this simple recipe for regret, Tchaikovsky turned Pushkin’s classic Russian novel into one of the world’s most beloved operas. Awash in aristocratic formality and extravagance, Onegin’s youthful disillusionment snowballs into a tragic love story saturated with drama, death, and desperation. Yet, along this cold, dark descent, Tchaikovsky never fails to flood us in famed arias, renowned ballroom dance numbers, and unforgettable moments.
Enjoy this classic Russian opera and receive a discount of 25% off regular ticket price by joining the Russian House of Kansas City group order.
