For the first time ever, Tchaikovsky’s monumental Russian opera will come to the stage in Bozeman. Based on Pushkin’s sweeping story of love, jealousy, and aristocratic life in Imperial Russia, this opera transports the audience to a time of sparkling ballrooms, lush country estates, duels, and romance. The arrogant Eugene Onegin brings chaos and tragedy to a small country village while attracting the adoration of Tatyana, the daughter of a wealthy landowner. Audiences will enjoy the unexpected and satisfying ending.


“…amid the vexing vacuity of calculation, thought and conversation,

she shines like a star in the night's darkest hour, in a pure, clear sky…”


“Music is an incomparably more powerful means and is a subtler language for expressing the thousand different moments of the soul's mood.”

-Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky


“Now in anger,

like hereditary enemies,

we silently and coldbloodedly

prepare to destroy each other.”

-Eugene Onegin
