The late Dmitri Hvorostovsky as Onegin
Here’s what’s coming up for the September 23 edition of “Sunday Night at the Opera” with host Alexa Petrenko:
“Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece Eugene Onegin is Russia’s most popular opera, inspired by one of Pushkin’s beloved poems. Dmitri Hvorostovsky sings the role of the vain and selfish Onegin, who callously rejects the love of the passionate and bookish Tatyana, sung by Nuccia Focile; kills his best friend Lensky (Neil Shicoff) in a duel, and realizes years later he made a mistake …. But the music is really great…..”
Sunday Night at the Opera airs at 9 PM on The New Classical FM.
