Love Letters! A Duel to the Death! A Powerful Woman! Be whisked away to the Romantic era of the 19th century with the story of young Tatiana, who is in love with the handsome, elegant, and cold Onegin. In her search for a hero, Tatiana learns to be one herself. Sweeping and lush orchestral music accompany John Cranko’s dramatic telling of this daring and unexpected tale of passion and tragedy.
Based on Alexander Pushkin’s final narrative poem masterpiece, Eugene Onegin, the story was first imagined for the stage as an opera by the great Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky. John Cranko created a full-length ballet for the same dramatic work, ingeniously arranging different pieces of Tchaikovsky’s orchestral music to create the score for what is considered one of the greatest story ballets of all time.
Recommended ages 8 and up.
