Presented by Naomi Barrettara
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Part of the Opera Boot Camp: Russian, Slavic, and French Repertoire series

The lineup of the Met’s 2016–17 season features a variety of operas from the French, Slavic, and Russian romantic repertoire, as well as a contemporary work by a Finnish composer. Join guild lecturer Naomi Barrettara as she explores the lives of these operas’ creators as well as the historical background, musical style, and cultural milieu of each work.

In this first lecture of the series we will focus on the life and musical style of Tchaikovsky, the evolution of his Eugene Onegin from Pushkin’s novel to the operatic stage, and elements of the opera that have contributed to its lasting popularity.
