Rediscover the story of Saint Petersburg dandy Eugene Onegin with this ballet choreographed to Tchaikovsky's music by John Cranko at the Palais Garnier in Paris.
Passion, impossible love, remorse, and lost chances are the dramatic themes of Pushkin's novel, transcribed in dance by John Cranko. The dancers' bodies express with lyricism and ardor the whole range of the characters' emotions through selected musical excerpts of works by Piotr Ilyitch Tchaikovsky.
