Pushkin’s great 19th-century verse-novel, Eugene Onegin, is interpreted with flawless storytelling skill by the master choreographer, John Cranko. With a wealth of magical moments, this compelling tale features an unusual twist of double unrequited love – while the high-handed Onegin at first spurns the young, naive Tatiana, she blooms to become a sophisticated St. Petersburg aristocrat who, in turn, rejects his subsequent advances in a final crushing blow. Tchaikovsky’s vivid music brings alive the world of Imperial Russia with beauty, drama and passion.
The acclaimed Étoile Roberto Bolle and guest artist, Marianela Nuñez, principal dancer of The Royal Ballet will perform the evening performances on July 31 and August 1, and the matinee on August 2. The August 1 matinee cast is to be announced.
