Eugene Onegin (Op. 24) is a three-act lyric opera composed and partially written by Tchaikovsky. The libretto is based upon the novel in verse of the same name by Russian author Alexander Pushkin and retains much of the poetry of the original. The opera was first performed in Moscow in 1879, and it premiered in several countries around Europe in the late 19th century and in America in 1920 at New York's Metropolitan Opera House. In almost every performance, the lyrics were translated from the original Russian. This volume contains the Italian version first performed at the Met, and includes a brief synopsis of the plot.
