Sergei Leyferkus portrays the jaded title character in this three-act rendering of composer Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky's most lyrical operatic opus. Recorded at the legendary Kirov Opera and Ballet Theatre, the production -- adapted from Aleksandr Pushkin's novel in verse -- conveys the unabridged splendor of Tchaikovsky's vision. The stellar cast includes Larissa Dyadkova, Yuri Marusin and Tatiana Novikova.
