Onegin, based on Alexander Puschkin's verse novel, is one of the greatest narrative ballets that most of the world-renowned ballet companies have in their repertoires. For dancers, its principal roles are some of the most coveted in the classical repertoire.
The ballet, set in Russia in 1820's, draws an impossible love between Tatiana, a village girl who later becomes an elegant and beautiful woman, and Onegin, an aristocratic, melancholic man. Among eloquent scenes that flow fluently (seamlessly), are two highlights; the last pas de deux in Act 1 that portrays Tatiana's dream of Onegin and the final pas de deux to depict the tragic conclusion of the love story.
The main roles will be performed by three dazzling pairs; Alicia Amatriain and Friedemann Vogel, Diana Vishneva, Principal of Mariinsky Ballet as guest artist, and Jason Reilly, and Elisa Badenes and Mathieu Ganio, Étoile of the Paris Opera Ballet as guest artist. Don't miss it!
