Mikhail Petrenko features in Netherlands Opera’s new blu-ray release

Eugene Onegin featuring Mikhail Petrenko as Prince Gremin.

Due for release on March 1st 2012 with Opus Arte, Mikhail Petrenko appears as Prince Gremin in this wonderful presentation of Tchaikovsky’s classic opera. 

Described by Tchaikovsky as ‘lyric scenes’, Eugene Onegin receives a spectacular reinterpretation from the Norwegian director Stefan Herheim. His productions create controversy and excitement around Europe, and here he takes Pushkin’s story of illusion, disaffection and frustrated love, and places the protagonists – world- weary Onegin and naïve, passionate Tatyana – in a triple temporal perspective, referencing the theatrical present, the period of the work’s composition, and the pageant of Russia’s history. Mariss Jansons, renowned for his mastery of Tchaikovsky’s symphonies, conducts this performance from Amsterdam’s Muziektheater.
