The Opera Guild of Rochester will tour Syracuse Opera’s production of Tchaikovsky’s “Eugene Onegin” on April 9.
Onegin brings heartbreak to those around him — Tatianna is humiliated by his recklessness, and his best friend Lensky finds himself reaching for the dueling pistols.
Syracuse Opera will present the work based on Alexander Pushkin’s novel in verse about a selfish hero who lives to regret his cavalier ways. The three-act opera presents a series of scenes from Onegin’s life. It premiered in 1879 in Moscow, and will be presented in Russian with subtitles at the Crouse-Hinds Auditorium at Syracuse University.
The tour costs $170 for OGR contributors, $190 for non-contributors and includes round-trip travel with box lunch and soft drinks, seating in Crouse-Hinds Auditorium and a four-course dinner at Abigail’s in Waterloo. The coach will leave at 11 a.m. April 9 from the parking lot of Richard A. Kroll Law Offices, 2425 Clover St., Rochester.
