“Onegin is awash in both beauty and poignancy.” Paula Citron, Globe and Mail

NAC Presentation

An arrogant young aristocrat carelessly rebuffs a passionate young landowner’s daughter, and sets in motion the compelling melodrama of Onegin. Based on Pushkin’s epic poem and the hugely popular opera by Tchaikovsky, this enduring love story is brought to vivid life by the exquisite virtuosity of the dancers and the superb narrative choreography of the legendary John Cranko.

Cavalier flirtations, petty jealousies and a violent duel play out against the romantic splendor of Imperial Russia in this much anticipated revival that has garnered unanimous acclaim and instantaneous standing ovations. Onegin is a delightful discovery for all classical ballet lovers!
