    1 of 1 2 of 1

      With its gorgeous music and sparkling wintry landscapes, Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky’s opera Eugene Onegin still pulls heartstrings well over a century after it was first performed in Moscow. Check out the production, based on Alexander Pushkin’s well-known novel about the cruelty of rejection, in the hands of the UBC Opera Ensemble, which is set to stage it with the UBC Symphony Orchestra under the baton of guest conductor David Agler; Krzysztof Biernacki directs this classic of lyric opera, next Thursday to Sunday (February 2 to 5) at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts.
