Stage Russia: Onegin (15*)

Afternoon Arts

Eugene Onegin

Timofey Kulyabin brings a fresh perspective on Pushkin's classic.

Timofey Kulyabin's Golden Mask Award-winning Onegin removes all expectations of Pushkin's novel in verse and places you not in some historical epoch, but in today's world, immersed in the inner thoughts, hopes, despairs, passions and disappointments that drift in, through and around the  central figures, Onegin, Tatiana, Olga and Lensky.

There are no grand balls, no fans, no lorgnettes, no 'Encyclopedia of Russian life'. Just a quiet love story that perfectly conveys the attitude of the great poet and how very much his masterwork still resonates with our 21st century reality.

In Russian with English subtitles

Running time: 160 minutes (with one 15 minute intermission)
