Conductor Douglas Boyd, director Michael Boyd and designer Tom Piper bring Tchaikovsky’s fateful romance to life this summer, with Roderick Williams and Natalya Romaniw making their role debuts.

Born in Swansea of Ukrainian descent, Natalya Romaniw, still in her twenties, is fast consolidating her reputation as one of the outstanding sopranos of her generation: the voice is full, warm and even throughout her range, and an earlier tendency to wildness and vibrato seems to have been curbed. Her acting is sensitive, responsive and engaging. Her Tatyana is beautifully done: her account of the Letter Scene doesn’t throw caution to the winds as the composer imagined, but in the final showdown with Onegin, she is by turns vulnerable, imperious and thrilling. This is an interpretation that could grow to greatness. The Telegraph

Eugene Onegin at Garsington Opera

Tatyana, a bookish country girl, yearns for more than the compromise and routine of provincial family life. Hoping she has met her true fate in Eugene Onegin, a brilliant and glamorous society bachelor visiting from Moscow, she pours out her love for him in an impulsive and passionate letter, setting off an inexorable and tragic chain of events. Based on Alexander Pushkin’s great verse novel of the same name, Tchaikovsky’s best-loved opera gives exquisite voice to the casualties of love, the victims in the battle between raw emotion and social convention. Tchaikovsky’s own pain, frustration and loss find expression here in some of his most haunting and beautiful music.
