Le sigh

Prepare to swoon, cher public, as the Bayerische Staatsopera presents yet another of their hunk-o-rama webcasts, Eugene Onegin, starring Simon Keenlyside and Pavol Breslik.

The live performance of the controversial “Brokeback” production of Tchaikovsky’s opera directed by Krzysztof Warlikowski will be webcast on Saturday, March 24 at 19:00 Munich time (2:00 PM EDT.)

Russian soprano Ekaterina Scherbachenko sings Tatiana and the Bavarian State orchestra will be led by young Finish conductor Pietari Inkinen. The webcast will transmit directly from the Bayerische Staatsoper’s website.

    I kept falling asleep watching Onegin today and missed some of the action that presumably explained Onegin’s motivation and Lenski’s. And was Onegin hitting on Tatiana at the end only because he sees her as his last hope to live the straight life? Is he sincere here, or confused, or in love? The final line of the opera has been translated sometimes to suggest Onegin is more humiliated than broken-hearted. His last action in this production suggests the same. So what was all that begging on his knees about?

    Anybody want to recap and interpret?

    From Intermezzo today regarding Glyndebourne free/live streams this summer:

    The Cunning Little Vixen, Le Nozze di Figaro and the double bill of L’Heure Espagnole and L’Enfant et les Sortilèges will all be streamed live. The Fairy Queen and La Cenerentola are to be recorded and broadcast later. The only production from this year’s Festival that won’t be shown is La bohème (a David McVicar revival).
