Eugene Onegin, Buxton Festival, July 2019

A simple production by using images of future events as a clever device to inject an element of fatalism. Conducted by the new artistic director Adrian Kelly it boasted luxury casting with Joshua Bloom as Prince Gremin, along with George Humphreys as an Onegin who acquired sympathetic gravitas as the opera progressed, plus fine performances from Shelley Jackson (Tatiana), Angharad Lyddon (Olga) and David Webb (Lensky). See my review in The Article.
