Stage Russia HD: Onegin
Sun Apr 28: 3.30pm
ONEGIN at Novosibirsks Red Torch Theatre
Timofey Kulyabins Golden Mask Award-winning Onegin removes all expectations of Pushkins novel in verse and places you not in some historical epoch, but in todays world, immersed in the inner thoughts, hopes, despairs, passions and disappointments that drift in, through and around the four 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.
Presented in Russian w/ English subtitles.
