One of the more poignant moments in the opera is the colloquy, (actually a dual monologue) between Onegin and Lensky just before the duel.  This moment, in which both consider, and then reject, the possibility of solving their differences, ending with them both singing, “Nyet, nyet,”  Hvorostovsky and Vargas made an important moment of this, and it is usually glossed over.  Listen to their renditions of this on the available DVD: it is matchless.  (And so is Fleming.)
