Tchaikovsky’s monumental Russian opera, Eugene Onegin, comes to the Willson stage in Bozeman
for the first time. Based on Pushkin’s sweeping story of love, jealousy, and aristocratic life in
Imperial Russia, this opera transports the audience to a time of sparkling ballrooms, lush country
estates, duels, and romance. The arrogant Eugene Onegin brings chaos and tragedy to a small
country village while attracting and shunning the adoration of Tatyana. Sung in Russian with
English supertitles, IOB’s production will feature internationally-renowned guest artists and an
orchestra and chorus of the region’s finest musicians, directed by Nathan Troup of Boston
Conservatory and conducted by Adam Turner, Artistic Director of Virginia Opera. The cast will be
joined by dancers and choreographers from Raison D’être Dance Project. Performances take place
on Friday, April 26 at 7:00 and Sunday, April 28 at 3:00, at the Willson Auditorium. For tickets,
visit intermountainopera.org or call 406-587-2889. Students receive 50% off, and first-time
attendees receive 25% off.
