For the third consecutive year, Anna Netrebko starred in the opening production of the season at the Metropolitan Opera, New York; a performance enjoyed by her legion of fans in more than 64 countries, as part of the Met s Live In HD cinema broadcasts.
The Met s new staging of Tchaikovsky s passionately lyrical masterpiece is the first DVD/Blu-ray release featuring Anna Netrebko in one of Russian opera s greatest and most demanding roles.
Anna s portrayal of Tatiana s journey from the tortured young woman of the famous letter scene , to society beauty has been acclaimed as much for its dramatic truth as its soaring musical lyricism.
Polish tenor star Piotr Beczala received glowing reviews for his performance as the lovelorn poet Lenski, Onegin's friend turned rival.
This greatest of Russian operas is conducted by the Music Director of the Mariinsky Theatre, St. Petersburg, Valery Gergiev.
Deborah Warner's new production, staged at The Met by award-winning actress Fiona Shaw, moves the drama from the 1820s of Pushkin s poem, to the more intensely psychological era of the opera s composition, in the 1870s.
The epic staging follows Tatiana from the isolated farmhouse of her youth to the glittering ballrooms of St.Petersburg and her fateful final encounter with Onegin, here set against a tempestuous Russian snowstorm.
The title role of the imperious Eugene Onegin is sung by charismatic Polish baritone Mariusz Kwiecien, here making his Met debut in a role that has been his calling card at many of the world s greatest opera houses.

One of the most loyal and dedicated fan bases in music history are the fans of Jimmy Buffett, affectionately known as the Parrot Heads . The legendary history of how this amazing sub-culture came to be will now be told in the original 90-minute documentary Parrot Heads. Directed by Bryce Wagoner, the film chronicles the birth of the movement when a young musician named Scott Nickerson, a big fan of Buffett s music, decided to put an ad in a local paper to corral any Buffett fans in the Atlanta area for a get together. What began as a small group of friends that would hang out on weekends has now grown into a worldwide organization known as Parrot Heads In Paradise, which promotes the message party with a purpose and has raised more than 40 million dollars in charity donations. Traversing the globe from Key West to Paris, Costa Rica to California, the international phenomenon is greater than ever and has even sparked its own genre of music, Trop Rock (short for Tropical Rock). Featuring never before seen interviews with Jimmy Buffett himself.
