Dacia Clay, KING FM Creative Director and host of the Classical
Classroom Podcast, chats with Seattle Opera Dramaturg Jonathan Dean
about Pushkin, the great Russian poet, novelist, and playwright.
Pushkin’s brilliant works have almost all been transformed into
operas, composed by generations of Russian composers. In Part One,
Clay and Dean give an overview of Pushkin’s brief and colorful
life. In Part Two, they start discussing the operas, focusing on
Boris Godunov and Eugene Onegin.
