NORTH CAROLINA OPERA'S EUGENE ONEGIN

MEYMANDI CONCERT HALL, RALEIGH

SUNday, JAN. 24

Somehow, Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin has never been performed in the Triangle. Written in 1877, the opera adapts the Pushkin poem of the same name. It tells the story of Tatiana, a country girl, and Onegin, a world-weary rake. She falls for him even as he pushes her away, and the relationship does not end well. There are regal balls, extended solos and a memorable duel to end Act 2. The music is as swirling and lush as all of Tchaikovsky's ballets and symphonies, full of glowing melodies and shimmering orchestration. This North Carolina Opera production features an exciting cast of up-and-coming singers, meant to inject this warhorse with new energy. Baritone Joo Won Kang returns as Onegin after a noteworthy performance in last season's La Traviata. This is a concert-only performance, so don't expect any opulent staging, sadly. 3 p.m., $25, 2 E. South St., Raleigh, 919-792-3850, www.ncopera.org. —Dan Ruccia
