Pushkin described the shallow life of a socialite, and a lover’s dilemma. The one you loved intensely, but never got, comes back wanting you, but now you are taken. What do you do?
Onegin is all about having a good time, and when Tatyana declares her love, he rejects her dismissively and condescendingly. Some years later, the roles are reversed. She is well-married and now he wants her desperately. The ballet is called Onegin, but really, we follow Tatyana’s story: her development from a young girl to a full-grown woman—and it is she who owns the stage when the curtain falls.
Choreographer John Cranko uses big emotions, and he uses Tchaikovsky. The music is not that of the composers in the opera Eugene Onegin, but is a medley from different works—to better be able to tell the story through dance.
