Notes on the performancesOpen 
A disillusioned young aristocrat rejects, in sport, what he will later recognise as his true, real love, but by then it is too late. Onegin is the perfect example of modern “drama in dance”. Inspired by the novel in verse by Alexander Pushkin and reinterpreted with mastery and sensitivity by John Cranko, this great tale of ill-fated love is narrated through pas de deux with extraordinary expressive power, precision-sculpted characters and a splendid gallery of company numbers, from jovial peasants to the provincial bourgeoisie, to the nobility.

Highlights include the letter scene in act one, depicting Tatiana’s hopes for requited love – one of the most demanding scenes in the modern repertory in terms of execution and interpretation –, the duel and the death of Lensky, and Tatiana and Onegin’s final pas de deux, the triumph of ambiguity and undeclared sentiment.

Building on the success of Season 2009/2010, Roberto Bolle and Maria Eichwald return in the roles of Onegin and Tatiana.
