A brooding masterpiece, Tchaikovsky's dark drama Eugene Onegin deals with a caddish aristocrat whose indifference towards others turns full circle and comes back to destroy him. It's the first of four productions this summer from London's Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
Baritone Simon Keenlyside sings the title role, with soprano Krassimira Stoyanova as Tatyana, in a production led by conductor Robin Ticciati.
