Some snow-covered recommendations from the Russian section of Katherine's collection.
Nobody did the intensely passionate, brooding Russian thing better than the mighty Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky. His 1879 opera Eugene Onegin tells the story of a selfish chap who regrets his foolish rejection of true love as well as shooting dead his best friend in a duel. ‘Well you would feel a bit sorry after that, wouldn’t you?’ says Katherine. Act III of the opera opens at a glittering society ball, but all Eugene can feel is remorse and the emptiness of his life.
