Inside the Music
Yevgeny Onegin

Presentation

FUN, THOROUGH, AND WITH LIVE PIANO ACCOMPANIMENT

Inside the Music is a series of musical lectures where you will learn all about the operas on our programme. This time we explore the music of Tchaikovsky's Yevgeny Onegin with musicology professor Francis Maes.

Francis Maes is an authority on Slavic music. In his latest book, Een verhaal van net niet, Francis Maes dives into every possible detail of the score and the genesis of Yevgeny Onegin. His highly comprehensible research forms the basis for an accessible lecture in which he reveals the secrets of the composition with the aid of live performed music excerpts. Afterwards, a convivial reception will allow you to catch up with the author.
