Here's a sad story of a man, Eugene Onegin, who thought he was above it all. No matter where he went, what he did, or who he met, he could barely remain interested long enough to find happiness. Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin is among a list of operas that are most frequently performed in opera houses around the world. In fact, it's one of Renee Fleming's prized roles.
