NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCE

 

A young, bored aristocrat lets go of his one true love out of mere flippancy, only realising it when it’s too late. Inspired by the novel in verse by Aleksandr Puškin, rewritten with skill and sensitivity by John Cranko, Onegin is a perfect example of a modern dance drama: a great, unhappy love story narrated through a series of powerfully expressive pas de deux, perfectly crafted characters and dazzling ensembles, to a score based on music by Tchaikovsky (but not a single note is taken from his opera Eugene Onegin) conducted on this occasion by Felix Korobov.
