: Eugene Onegin

Opera by Tchaikovsky, after the poem by Pushkin. English version by Edward J. Dent. Produced by Stanford Robinson, in collaboration with Mark H. Lubbock.

The action takes place partly upon a landed estate, and partly in St Petersburg, in the second decade of the last century
BBC Theatre Chorus
BBC Theatre Orchestra: conductor, Stanford Robinson
Narrator, Dennis Arundell
Although Eugene Onegin is the most successful of all Tchaikovsky's operas, it has rarely been performed in England. Sir Henry Wood first produced it in this country in 1893 when Tchaikovsky was unknown here. It was Sir Henry Wood 's first introduction to the music of the composer and from then onwards he became Tchaikovsky's most ardent propagandist.
Tchaikovsky tells us that while working on Eugene Onegin he was so engrossed in the story that Tatiana "had become for me a living person in living surroundings. I loved Tatiana and was terribly indignant with Onegin, who seemed to me a cold, heartless coxcomb."

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
