From the Salzburg Festival

Tchaikovsky is best known for his symphonic scores and ballets such as the Nutcracker, Swan Lake, and Sleeping Beauty. Yet his operas also occupy a place of honor in his oeuvre, and two of them, Eugene Onegin and The Queen of Spades, both based on novels by Pushkin, are among his very finest works.

On a Russian country estate, awkward, inexperienced young Tatyana is seized by a sudden passion for the handsome, blasé new neighbor Eugene Onegin. She writes him a love letter, but he makes it clear to her that he is not interested. Later, Tatyana‘s sister flirts with Onegin, her fiancé challenges him to a duel and is killed by Onegin. Years later, Onegin returns, finds that Tatyana has married an aged prince, and tries to win her back.
