‘Glorious music’ of the Metropolitan Opera coming back to Rialto

The Met will have 10 exciting performances this winter, beginning this Saturday at 10 a.m. with Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin

Escape the dreary winter days with glorious music, pageantry and drama — the Metropolitan Opera is coming back to the Rialto Theatre.

The Met will have 10 exciting performances this winter, beginning this Saturday at 10 a.m. with Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin.

Anna Netrebko and Mariusz Kwiecien star as the lovestruck Tatiana and the imperious Onegin in Tchaikovsky’s fateful romance.

Deborah Warner’s new production, directed by Fiona Shaw, is set in the late 19th century and moves episodically from farmhouse to ballroom, with a powerful snowstorm providing the dramatic setting for the finale. Russian maestro Valery Gergiev conducts.

Season tickets are on sale at the Rialto Theatre. Single tickets are also on sale.

For more information, call the Rialto Theatre at 250-338-5502.
