Eugene Onegin at the Barbican – 18th to 21st February 2015


Conceived with breathtaking beauty and poetic poignancy by one of Russia’s most prestigious companies, this is the first-ever theatrical adaptation of Pushkin’s novel in verse.

Holding true to the essence of the literary work, what follows is a sweeping tale of unrequited love, disillusionment, forgiveness and remorse unfolds in 19th-century Russia.

From Moscow to the country estate, Pushkin’s world materialises through magnificent visual imagery, exquisite movement and larger-than-life characterisation. Russian and French folk songs, in combination with the music of Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich and Offenbach, serve to enhance an underlying mood of melancholy lightened by moments of playfulness and wit.

Artistic Director of Vakhtangov State Academic Theatre since 2007, Rimas Tuminas’s dramatisation features a 45-strong ensemble.

Sold-out for over a year in Moscow, the highly stylised, quintessentially Russian production received the 2014 Golden Mask Award for Best Director.
