In a late cast change at the Vienna State Opera, Nicole Car will jump in as Tatiana in the new Dmitri Tcherniakov production of Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, opening this weekend.

It will be Nicole’s house debut. She has already sung the role in Munich, London and Paris.

In Vienna, she replaces Tamuna Gochashvili.

  • Dagna says:

    She was wonderful as Tatiana in Berlin a few years back

  • Allen says:

    Superlative young voice and actress!

  • Yes Addison says:

    It’s new to Vienna, but I believe this is the same Tcherniakov Onegin that’s been making the European rounds for 14 years. The one that so upset Madame Vishnevskaya when the Bolshoi put it on in ’06.

    Best to Nicole Car.

    She sang the dress rehearsal extremely well! Congratulations Nicole and best wishes for the performances!
