Tchaikovsky and Pushkin’s Eugene Onegin
Tuesday, March 1, 2016, 6:00 pm
Downtown Eugene Public Library, 10th and Olive

Susanna Lim, Associate Professor of Russian literature at the University of Oregon’s Clark Honors College, will explore Piotr Tchaikovsky’s transformation of Aleksandr Pushkin’s novel in verse, Eugene Onegin, from a classic of Russian literature into a universally loved opera.

From Novel in Verse to Opera:
Eugene Onegin
February 1 – March 31, 2016
University of Oregon Libraries: Knight Library

This exhibit by the University of Oregon Libraries explores Russian intellectual and cultural life when Aleksandr Pushkin (1799-1837) and Piotr Ilich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893) flourished.

Pushkin, Russia’s greatest poet and writer, wrote Eugene Onegin in 1823-1831. It became a national masterpiece, and Tchaikovsky’s opera based on the novel premiered in Moscow in 1879.

This exhibit features materials pertaining to this classic work: Pushkin’s illustrations to his novel, Tchaikovsky’s comments in letters and diaries, recordings of the opera, and programs published by opera companies.

At Last! Eugene Onegin in Eugene, Oregon!
Ever since the 2015-16 season was announced, Eugene area opera lovers have been looking forward to Tchaikovsky’s 1878 masterpiece of romance and tragedy.
