WIN Eugene Onegin on DVD from the Paris Opera9:40, 30th January 2020
Enter our competition for your chance to win BelAir Classique’s superb release of Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, filmed live at Paris Opera
The production, by Dmitri Tcherniakov, was filmed at the Palais Garnier on a visit by the Bolshoi to Paris in 2008.
Reviewing the DVD for Opera Now, Francis Muzzu wrote: ‘The director manages to revolutionise the opera without doing anything untoward to it. But it is so sophisticated in its simplicity, so elegant and taut, that it packs a visceral punch. The cast is up to the standards of the staging. Mariusz Kwiecień’s Onegin unravels to reveal passion beneath the cool exterior, his baritone fitting the theatre superbly. Tatiana Monogarova’s shy heroine quivers with suppressed passions, wonderfully caught on film, and her dignity as a princess is astounding.’
Available on DVD or Blu-Ray format, don’t miss this moving tale of love and loss – one of opera’s great romantic weepies.

The competition closes on 14 February 2020.
