Scene 1

The village. The LarinsЎЇ neighbour Lensky, OlgaЎЇs suitor, suddenly arrives with his friend Onegin ЎЄ a young man, who has recently come from the capital. The arrival of the new visitor perturbs the LarinsЎЇ life. The new guest is welcomed with interest. Onegin discredits LenskyЎЇs choice of fiancЁ¦e. Tatiana is deeply moved by her meeting with Onegin.

Scene 2

At night. Seeing TatianaЎЇs confusion, the Nanny tries to distract and comfort her. When sheЎЇs alone, Tatiana writes a letter to Onegin. She thinks him to be her only one. At dawn, Tatiana asks the Nanny to deliver the letter to Onegin.

TatianaЎЇs name day. Lensky has persuaded his friend to come to the Larins, but everything there irritates and bores Onegin. He decides to hurt Lensky and starts courting Olga ostentatiously. Lensky is angered by OneginЎЇs behaviour; a quarrel breaks out. Attention of the mob makes Lensky challenge Onegin to a duel.

Scene 5

The duel. Lensky is waiting for Onegin. HeЎЇs thinking about life with anguish and pain. Onegin is late; he doesnЎЇt want to bring the conflict to end. Former friends doubt their decision. But itЎЇs too late and their escape routes are cut off. A shot is heard. Lensky falls dead.

Scene 6

Ceremonial reception of Gremin and his wife. After a long absence, Onegin returns to city life and meets Tatiana. She is married to Gremin and is the centre of attention. Onegin is astonished by TatianaЎЇs transformation. Gripped by memories he decides to secure a meeting with her.

Scene 7

Onegin has secured a meeting with Tatiana. His speech is full of remorse. Tatiana recalls their first meeting. She is still in love with him, but her decision is final. She asks Onegin to leave her.
