Known for his dramatic interpretation of the scoundrel Eugene Onegin, Rex Harrington’s final performance season featured Onegin. Toronto audiences saw Harrington’s final Toronto performance of the role at the Hummingbird Centre on November 30, 2003. Following that, a crowd of Harrington’s fans and peers were treated to his farewell performance of Onegin in Ottawa’s National Arts Centre on March 20, 2004.
