Kasper Holten’s production of Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin is now available to buy on DVD and Blu-ray from the ROH Shop.

The production had its premiere in February 2013 and was relayed live to cinemas around the world during the run.

Tchaikovsky’s tragic work is based on Alexander Pushkin’s poem of the same name. The production is the director’s first for The Royal Opera and foregrounds the power of memory and regret. ‘It is about real people and something that we can all identify with,’ says Kasper. ‘It needs to have a direct emotional communication with the audience. It is special and fragile but also passionate.’
