During this month of February we will concentrate on several in-Depth articles about Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin, and a companion subject: the great Russian tenor Sergei Lemeshev, arguably the best Onegin ever. It was his signature role, he sung it for the first time at 25 years old, and offered more than 500 performances, the last one being already seventy.

Any contribution is welcome.

Or Lensky, I would think. :P
