Eugene Onegin proved to be a hit with the audience!

The critics seemed pleased, too:
- 77 Square - "Madison Opera's rich Russian gamble pays off"
- The Isthmus - "Madison Opera's Eugene Onegin tells of love and regret"
- The Well-Tempered Ear - "Madison Opera breaks new ground with...Eugene Onegin"
- Channel3000.com - "Old Friends Return to Madison Opera"

The Russian Folk Orchestra and Russian Educational Association were very popular, as well!

It was an exciting weekend of great opera. Thank you to everyone who came out to Eugene Onegin— some of you to both performances! — and to those who stopped the MadOpera staff in the lobby to express your appreciation. We encourage you to email your comments and let us know your thoughts.
