Eugene Onegin: Gossip, Horoscopes, and Social Expectations

OPERAtion: What's My Why?

Exploring the drama filled "Eugene Onegin" by Tchaikovsky, this episode we dive into the topics of love, boredom, and the fragile ego of a title character who causes chaos in the lives of others. Premiered in 1879, this opera remains strikingly relevant in today’s social media driven world, where a social circuit of expectation and gossip has been replaced by the need to present our “best selves” online.  Support the show (https://paypal.me/whatsmywhy?locale.x=en_US)
