Eugene Onégin

Eugene Onégin

Love, friendship and fidelity collide with devastating consequences in this story of passion, pride, a moment’s madness, a duel and a true love lost.

After two consecutive sold-out productions of ‘La Traviata’ in 2022 and ‘Tosca’ in 2023, Northern Ireland Opera returns to the Grand Opera House in September 2024 with Tchaikovsky’s stunning operatic masterpiece, ‘Eugene Onégin’.

Directed by Cameron Menzies, don’t miss your opportunity to see this award-winning national opera company’s new production of one of the most exciting stories ever set to music, by the composer of ‘The Nutcracker’, ‘Swan Lake’ and ‘Sleeping Beauty’.
