The act goes on to portray Eugene’s despair and regrets as he ponders the decisions he has made.
“I’ve always felt that the opera should be called ‘Tatyana’ because she’s really the driving force,” Noulin-Merat said, pointing to a change in emphasis in the opera. “(Tatyana) takes us through different moments in her life of this wonderful love story that she has with Eugene. ... It’s really about a woman making her own decision and moving forward.” The Columbus Dispatch said as they wrote about how Tatyana is the true star of the show.
