The production was beautiful! Sets, costumes and projections really intensified the story. And of course, the music was superb. This music is obviously in the heart and soul of Anna Netrebko and Valery Gergiev, and their passion for it came through. Tchaikovsky's score is so beautiful and romantic! The two leading men (tenor and baritone) both have Russian as their second language, and their proficiency in the language made their roles more realistic. I have seen a number of productions of Eugene Onegin, and this one has to be number one. If you are an opera lover, GO!!!

Went to the Opera, but due to technical difficulties didn't get to see / hear the Opera. Runner Runner, was OK but didn't quite fit the bill.

The singing, the acting, the pace of the evolution of the story and production were so exciting and well done, that my interest and enthusiasm never flagged, for even one minute. Despite some criticism of Peter Gelb's choice of this as the starting presentation of the season, I believe it was a brilliant choice, and the live audience thought so too with its standing ovation. Kudos to Mr. Gelb, as well, for bringing us The Met in HD!!!!

This was a beautiful performance. The Rockville Regal theater was comfy, the other viewers polite and quiet. Couldn't be better.

Had never seen this opera before. Truly a wonderful example of Thaikovsky's finist work.
Moving, passionate, superb singing.
