"The cast was led by Micah Schroeder as Onegin. Schroeder embodied a 19th century dandy, showing his character’s aloofness from the very moment he stepped on stage and viewed the other characters with disdain. His vocal power came to fruition in the final scene as he humbled himself before Tatyana."
