There Is An Important Cancellation For Saturday’s ‘Eugene Onegin’ At The Metropolitan Opera

Martyl Sohl/Met Opera

There will be a different maestro in the pit at tonight’s “Eugene Onegin” at the Metropolitan Opera.

Joel Revzen will conduct the performance in the absence of Robin Ticciati, who is ill. Ticciati has conducted the entire run to this point, with OperaWire remarking that his conducting last Friday “wasn’t a revelatory account of Tchaikovsky’s score, but every note was in its place and the overall pacing had a sense of drive. Rubati were few and far between, allowing for any tempo stretching that did occur to have greater emotional weight… The dances, which were all elegantly staged, were portrayed with quicker tempi, which only served to create the propulsive drive of the episodic narrative.”

Revzen has been on staff with the Met Opera throughout the season, covering performances for such operas as “L’Italiana in Algieri,” “Manon Lescaut,” “I Puritani,” “Rigoletto,” and, of course, “Eugene Onegin.”

He is scheduled to head to Napa Valley for the Festival Napa Valley Bernstein and will also lead concerts at Classical Tahoe.

Next season he will cover “Turandot,” “Madama Butterfly,” “Norma,” “The Magic Flute,” “Cendrillon,” and “Lucia di Lammermoor” at the Met.
