Tchaikovsky's 'Eugene Onegin'
at Los Angeles Opera,
enjoyed by MARIA NOCKIN

 

Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin (1799-1837) wrote the verse novel from which the libretto for Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's opera, Eugene Onegin, was taken. The novel is made up of three hundred eighty-nine stanzas of iambic tetrameter with an unusual rhyme scheme now called the Pushkin Sonnet.
