About 'Yevgeny Onegin'

"It's about nothing, and yet it's about everything. It's about life and death, it's about love and social hierarchy..." In the run-up to Yevgeny Onegin, their fourth collaboration at La Monnaie, we sat down with Alain Altinoglu and Laurent Pelly — a conductor with a unique theatrical feeling, a director who knows how to "stage" music.
