Eugene Onegin is a well-known example of lyric opera; the libretto follows very closely Pushkin's original, retaining much of his poetry, to which Tchaikovsky adds music of a dramatic nature. The story concerns a selfish hero who lives to regret his blas´┐Ż rejection of a young woman's love and his careless incitement of a fatal duel with his best friend. It is part of the standard operatic repertoire. There are a several recordings of it, and it is regularly performed.The Lensky Aria At a rustic water mill on the banks of a wooded stream, Lensky sings the aria "Where, where you have you fled?", contrasting his happy memories with burdensome presentiments, with a sincerity of expression. The duet of Lensky and Onegin, "Enemies, enemies", imparts a air of gloomy meditation. While the orchestra plays the tragic melody from Lensky's aria, Onegin kills him in a duel. Here its prenseted in a flute and piano version.
