KC cafeteria is horrible. Cafeteria with real restaurant $prices. Go over to Watergate and find pizza/salad place or hotel rest.for a bit more upscale. KC should be ashamed of itself for their "offerings".

Description

Conducted by General and Artistic Director Valery Gergiev, Tchaikovsky’s riveting opera _Eugene Onegin _is performed in concert for one night only. Based on the Pushkin novel, one of the most treasured works of Russian literature, the opera follows the dashing and worldly gentleman Eugene Onegin, who will come to regret his blasé rejection of the impressionable country girl Tatiana’s love and his careless incitement of a fatal duel with his best friend Lensky. The Mariinsky’s performances of the work at the Kennedy Center in 2003 (as Kirov Opera) were “one of the great musical events of the season” according to The Washington Post.
