Love Lost

Where Paris - - Entertainment -

Drama, love and friend­ship make the fa­mous opera of Eu­gene One­gin one of the most heart­break­ing sto­ries ever told. Based on the verse novel writ­ten by Alexan­der Pushkin in 1878, the Tchaikovsky-scored opera tells the story of Eu­gene One­gin, a rich Rus­sian play­boy, who in­ad­ver­tently ends his friend­ship with Vladimir Len­sky with ir­re­versible con­se­quences, and how his ar­ro­gance stood in the way of a ro­mance be­tween the timid Tatyana and him­self. The lat­est in­ter­pre­ta­tion of this beau­ti­ful and sad opera that draws on how pride and re­morse can al­ter one’s life course is chore­ographed by John Cranko and is be­ing played out at Opéra Garnier through to the 7th of March. Opéra Garnier Place de l’Opéra (9th), 01 71 25 24 23
