Conductor: Valery Gergiev Tatiana: Anna Netrebko Olga: Oksana Volkova Lenski: Piotr Beczala Onegin: Mariusz Kwiecien Gremin: Alexei Tanovitsky

The season opens on September 23 with a new production of Tchaikovsky's romantic tragedy Eugene Onegin. Valery Gergiev returns to the Met to conduct the opening performances of this production, staged by acclaimed English director Deborah Warner in her Met debut. Mariusz Kwiecien sings his first Met performances as the imperious title character, a much-admired interpretation he has sung in many of the world's leading opera houses, opposite Anna Netrebko as Tatiana, in her third consecutive Met opening night and her first company performances as the naive heroine from Pushkin's classic novel. Piotr Beczala reprises his performance as Onegin's friend turned rival, Lenski. A second cast, conducted by Alexander Vedernikov in his Met debut, features Peter Mattei as Onegin, Marina Poplavskaya as Tatiana, and, in his first Met performances since the 2008-09 season, Rolando Villazin as Lenski; all three singers will be making their company role debuts.

Venue Description: The Met Opera is a vibrant home for the most creative and talented artists from around the world. Longtime musical director James Levine is credited with having created one of opera's finest orchestras and choruses.
