DVD release: Omer Meir Wellber conducts Tchaikovsky’s “Eugene Onegin”

Omer Meir Wellber conducts a live recording of Tchaikovsky’s opera Eugene Onegin that is being released as a DVD/Blu-ray from Cmajor in April 2013. The recording was made during his first year as Music Director at the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia in Valencia at the rostrum of the Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana. In Mariusz Trelinski’s production he leads “an ideally well-balanced vocal cast” (Die Welt, 5 February 2011) headed by Artur Ruzinski as Onegin and Kristīne Opolais as Tatyana.

Mariusz Trelinski, Polish filmmaker and theater director, has created a series of dream-like, surrealist tableaux. The clear lines of the production are echoed by the slender musical design of Omer Meir Wellber –  “Young and highly talented conductor Omer Meir Wellber turns Tchaikovsky’s opera Eugene Onegin into a miracle of poetry.” writes Julia Spinola in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (29 January 2011).
