Tchaikovsky wrote Eugene Onegin in 1878, using a libretto by Konstantin Shilovsky based on the epic poem by Pushkin. Flirtatious Olga and shy, bookish Tatyana are sisters, Olga being happily engaged to Lenski. One day Lenski arrives with a friend, Eugene Onegin, and Tatyana is smitten. She writes him a letter, but he rudely rebuffs her and she is devastated. At the dance that night he dances with Olga, making Lenski jealous also. They fight a duel in which Lenski is killed. Six years later, Tatyana has become a beauty and married Prince Gremin, unbeknownst to Onegin who has become a wanderer. Onegin enters Gremin’s house for a party, sees Tatyana, falls in love and pleads with her to come with him but Tatyana, though confessing she still loves him, refuses him – she is married. Onegin is left alone and heartbroken.
