The Bolshoi troupe triumphs at Paris Opera's 2008 season opening with Eugene Onegin.

Three romantic heroes each with a solitary destiny: Tatiana, a Romanesque young woman seeking absolution; Onegin, a distant dandy hiding emptiness under affected haughtiness; and Lenski, abandoned by his literary idol. Between these three, barren affections presage the inexorable social ruin.

With a stage setting as sombre as it is effective EUR" a great dining table appears in the middle of a salon EUR" the director Dmitri Tcherniakov separates two different worlds and lends the drama a clarity rarely reached.
