Vakhtangov Theatre: Eugene Onegin

Rated NR 180 min. 2016

Eugene Onegin has often been referred to as an encyclopedia of 19th century Russian life. Rimas Tuminas' reimagining unfolds in the memory and imagination of Pushkin's characters. The images are split between past and present, between reality and imagination.The scale of the production constantly shifts from noisy celebrations to secluded contemplation, from crowd scenes to lonely recollections, all of which are drawn together from the past just like the fragments of Tatyana's love letter, framed and hung on the wall, looming next to and above Onegin's arm-chair.
