Eugene Onegin

Vakhtangov State Academic Theatre of Russia

Alexander Pushkin’s timeless novel is brought to life in this rare appearance by the legendary Vakhtangov State Academic Theatre of Russia. Internationally lauded director Rimas Tuminas stages a theatrical adaptation of Eugene Onegin complete with the relevant themes of love, disillusionment, forgiveness, condemnation, and cynicism that have made it a staple of the Russian literary canon. Winner of the Crystal Turandot, Russia’s most prestigious theatrical award, this lively production remains faithful to Pushkin’s original text infused with Russian and French folk songs and showcasing the talents of 45 actors. Direct from New York’s Cherry Orchard Festival, this visually dazzling, stylish and daring adaptation establishes itself as a modern masterpiece of theatre.
