Red Torch Theatre, Novosibirsk: 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 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 with English subtitles
