NAC English Theatre Collaboration

  • Book, Music and Lyrics by Amiel Gladstone and Veda Hille
  • Directed by Amiel Gladstone

Produced by The Musical Stage Company (Toronto, ON) in collaboration with NAC English Theatre

Based on the poem by Pushkin and the opera by Tchaikovsky.
Evgeni Onegin is a charismatic and bored bad boy who makes ruinous choices at every turn, leaving devastation in his wake. Based on Alexander Pushkin’s serial poem about unrequited love in 19th century Russia, this sweeping and romantic story for the ages gets a hip and acclaimed new theatrical treatment. With inventive choreography and a sharp, 21st century sensibility, Onegin is as fresh today as it was nearly two centuries ago. From the creators of Do You Want What I Have Got? A Craigslist Cantata, including a raucous and uplifting score by creators Veda Hille and Amiel Gladstone, this is the very definition of passion. Lubov!

“A breathtaking experience… you really felt a part of what was happening onstage.”
Every now and again, I see the first scene of a show and I’m so impressed that I watch the rest of the show waiting to see if I can be talked out of programming it. From the first note to the very last,
Onegin had me hooked.
