Eugene Onegin: About last night…

As you may (or may not) know, the MadOpera staff has undergone a changing of the guard. In addition to General Director Kathryn Smith, MadOpera also has new faces in marketing, patron services, and artistic and office management. This past weekend marked the first production for the new crew, and it was quite a weekend!

Eugene Onegin proved to be a hit with the audience!

The critics seemed pleased, too:

  • 77 Square – “Madison Opera’s rich Russian gamble pays off” 
  • The Isthmus – “Madison Opera’s Eugene Onegin tells of love and regret”
  • The Well-Tempered Ear – “Madison Opera breaks new ground with…Eugene Onegin
  • Channel3000.com – “Old Friends Return to Madison Opera”
The palace ballroom in St. Petersburg

The Russian Folk Orchestra and Russian Educational Association were very popular, as well!

Patrons arrived early to listen to the Russian Folk Orchestra.

It was an exciting weekend of great opera. Thank you to everyone who came out to Eugene Onegin— some of you to both performances!   and to those who stopped the MadOpera staff in the lobby to express your appreciation. We encourage you to email your comments and let us know your thoughts.
