Tatyana in Eugene Onegin, Tacoma Opera


"Spearheading the drama — and stealing the scene from Onegin himself — was Allison Pohl. As Tatyana, the country girl who falls in love with Onegin and deals with the soul-crushing fallout, Pohl poured heart, soul and a silvery butterfly soprano into the role, morphing both physically and vocally from naïve teen to sorrowful adult. Using the entire stage to draw us in, her “letter scene” was a brilliant exploration of character, from pensive penning at the desk to flouncing on the bed to kneeling prayerfully in a pool of light."
