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."
