When Tatyana declares her love to Onegin, does she suspect for a moment that he will reject her, preferring to flirt with her sister Olga, much to the frustration of her friend Lensky?

However Onegin does not realize that by his refusal, he reaches the point of no return. And when, a few years later, he is taken by a powerful admiration when he sees Tatyana again, metamorphosed by her social ascension, it’s however too late. Onegin will have no choice but to sink into deep despair.

Pushkin’s novel portrays 19th-century Russian life in lavish settings – the peaceful countryside and the world of Moscow society. Here Tchaikovsky finds the material for one of his most popular and powerful works. His music subtly underscores the feelings evolving towards a nostalgia so characteristic of the Russian soul.
