'Miss Fleming's sympathetic, exquisitely sung Tatiana was a major achievement.' The New York Times

"Luxuriously cast but staged with restraint, Robert Carsen's production as revived by Peter McLintock has already reached wide audiences through the Met's live screenings. For one, Onegin really is central to the drama… Hvorostovsky's hero, always elegant in his long phrases, shows a human face to the rejection of the young and impressionable Tatyana and sensitively underlines the notion, heightened by Tchaikovsky's short duet of asides, that the senseless duel with his best friend Lensky might be stopped at any moment. ...Fleming comes into her own in the final blaze of passion, a truly cinematic scene between two charismatic stars. ...Gergiev conjures limpid but always well projected woodwind solos in the first act and powerful bass lines to emphasise lurking tragedy. He's also an inspiring presence in the short behind-the-scenes documentary." BBC Music
