Fiona Shaw emphasizes how much Tchaikovsky must have understood Pushkin and how he incorporated it into his opera. They also talked about how the set is traditional looking, but it’s still suggestive of the location. Costumes are in late 18h century dress, as well.

The celebrities in attendance tonight are: Dan Stevens, Bryan Batt, A’mare Stoudemire, William Kentridge, Patrick Stewart, Zac Posen(Probably.He’s always there.).
If you didn’t know what this opera is about, it’s about a young woman, Tatjana, who falls in love with Eugene Onegin. However, he doesn’t reciprocate her love until many years later, once she is married.
AND, Lucine Amara and Rosalind Elias for the intermission interview. YUSSSSS.
Let’s get started!
