Lyric Opera of Chicago's 2017 Season Continues on WRTI: Tchaikovsky's EUGENE ONEGIN on July 8th!

Todd Rosenberg
Lyric Opera of Chicago
Lyric Opera of Chicago presents Tchaikovsky's EUGENE ONEGIN on WRTI, July 8th at 1 pm.

Intensely passionate drama set to some of opera’s most sweeping, soulful, and heart-stoppingly beautiful music—that is Eugene Onegin. Tatiana is a lovesick country girl, and Onegin is the sophisticated young man who callously spurns her love before realizing, too late, what a mistake he’s made.

Here is Pushkin’s profoundly human, hopelessly romantic, ultimately devastating story, elevated by Tchaikovsky’s richly layered and unabashedly expressive music. Find out why Eugene Onegin is beloved by opera audiences the world over on Saturday, July 8th at 1 pm on WRTI!
