WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Don't miss this rare appearance by the legendary Vakhtangov State Academic Theatre of Russia, with a modern interpretation of Alexander Pushkin's most sincere and timeless work. With its enduring themes of condemnation, love, disillusionment, cynicism, compassion, and forgiveness, Eugene Onegin is as relevant today as it's been for almost two centuries. World-renowned director Rimas Tuminas' theatrical adaptation of the work, recently recognized with Russia's most prestigious theatrical award, the Crystal Turandot, remains faithful to Pushkin's original text, providing an insight into the essence of the Russian soul. Showcasing 45 actors on stage and impressive set designs, featuring music by Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich, along with Russian and French folk songs, Eugene Onegin is a daring and stylish display of real masterpiece theater.
