5.0 out of 5 stars The best Onegin, with Chekhovian overtones 20 Jan 2014
Format:DVD
This production from the Metropolitan Opera must stand as at least the equal of the earlier Robert Carsen Met production with Renee Fleming and Dmitri Hvorostovsky released on DVD a few years ago. In my opinion this new production is superior by a nose, although I could not be without either.

The production is directed by Deborah Warner, with later assistance from Fiona Shaw, and their experience with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre of Great Britain enriches and enlivens the theatricality of the piece. In the first act particularly the setting - which is in the summer house of the Larin estate - suggests a Chekhov play: the playing area is wide and shallow, with the upstage area seen only dimly through windows or an open door, and the lighting is at once suggestive of autumn sunshine filtering through trees through the windows and an enclosed, even slightly oppressive, interior. The blocking for the characters is shapely and intelligent, and the story line flows through their movements in this space as much as through what they are singing. It is brilliantly conceived. Whereas the earlier production with Fleming and Hvorostovsky was essentially impressionistic, with an open stage covered with autumn leaves for this section, and an inserted prop set into the same setting for Tatiana's bedroom in the letter scene, Warner's production grounds the characters in their lives, and in the manners of the Russian upper classes of the time.

It is of course the music which carries the day, and there is no question that this cast is superlative in every respect. Tatiana in Netrebko's interpretation is not so socially poised as Fleming's, more at odds with herself, and somewhat chafed at the small circumference of her life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Traditional production 18 Jun 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I do not have much to criticise here. It is a traditional production, which is a relief after some recent outrages. The soloists were all excellent. I love Anna Netrebko, but she looked a little matronly here for a young girl. I have only watched this once, but it left me strangely unmoved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Met triumph 6 May 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The combination Deborah Warner and Fiona Shaw along with Tom Pye,and costume designer Chloe Obelensky,makes for engaging viewing.The Lenski of Piotr Beczala is just thrilling to listen to.The creamy voice of Anna Netrebko is so good along side the emotional Mariusz Kweicien,its hard to believe that it could be bettered.Blue ray,HD, visual and sound are exellent.Its the way to go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real joy to watch 6 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Mariusz Kwiecien is a superb actor with a superb voice. Anna Netrebko is full of passion, with a magnificent voice and a great actress. Piotr Beczala ardent and exquisite. And the orchestra conducted by Gergiev - ten points. A DVD to watch and watch and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great performance from the Met. 7 Feb 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Anna Netrebko hit the international operatic scene with that abominable production of La Traviata from Salzburg. She has been singing many Italian roles, ever since, performing better in the Bel Canto roles than in anything more dramatic, as she is blessed with an incredible voice, but seemed to lack style, in my opinion due to bad direction on the part of many of her producers. Now at last she is singing in her own language in a role she obviously understands well. The result is astounding. She is simply superb, far better than in any of her previous roles.
The rest of the cast is excellent. I have always had reservations for Gergiev's conducting. He is better than usual here but not as inspiring as some of the some of the old great Russian conductors.
I am basing this review on the "Met live" performance, but I imagine the blu ray transfer will be top quality as usual.
I strongly recommend this performance to anyone who likes this opera.

3.0 out of 5 stars nice but not so stunning 16 Mar 2014
Format:Blu-ray
The first part of the story is left outside how Onegin gets to the countryside after his uncle died. The opera begins with Larina and she is listening to her girls Olga and Tatyana. Onegin is introduced by Lenskij. Tatyana falls immediate in love with him. He rejects her love and kills Lenskij in a duel after the party of her Saints day. Time pass and Onegin finds her well educated. The story turn inside out and Onegin is the one with strong love and passion but Tatyana rejects him as he did early on. The kiss is a little bit dramatic in the end. It is a lyrical opera and Tchaikovsky transformed the book by Pushkin very well. The opera is traditionally performed and the pictures are beautiful. I like the orchestral part very much. The actors interpreted the characters in their own way and the opera is very well played. Anna Netrebko sings the letter scene very well and the final scene is good.
