Sunday Night Music

I plan to start posting Sunday Night Music every week, similar to Paul Krugman's Friday night music, but with good music. And really, what could be better than Krassimira Stoyanova in the letter scene from Tchaikovsky's opera Eugene Onegin?
It is sung in Russian and the subtitles here are in French. If those don't work for you, here's the libretto in English (start at "Tatyana: I'm not ill," and end at "and in that I put my trust!"). I'm told that Stoyanova had a fantastic album of Slavic arias, but I've so far not found it for sale anywhere.

Also, don't be that guy who coughs at the opera. Get your flu shot now!
