The 2013-2014 season opens with Anna Netrebko, Mariusz Kwiecien and Piotr Beczala starring in Eugene Onegin. Deborah Warner's new production, directed by Fiona Shaw, is set in the late 19th century and moves episodically from farmhouse to ballroom, with a powerful snowstorm providing the dramatic setting for the finale. Piotr Beczala is Lenski, Onegin's friend turned rival. Later performances in the run feature another extraordinary cast: Marina Poplavskaya, Peter Mattei, and Rolando Villazón. Russian maestro Valery Gergiev conducts.
Eugene Onegin is a co-production of the Metropolitan Opera and English National Opera.
