A night at the Opéra de Québec with Eugène Onéguine

The premier performance of Eugène Onéguine, Tchaikovsky's melodramatic opera based on a novel in verse by Alexandre Pushkin, received a rousing standing ovation from the audience as the curtain came down at the Grand Théâtre last Saturday evening.

Eugène Onégin is a well-known example of lyric opera.
