Film screening: Evgenii Onegin (Vakhtangov Theatre)

We are pleased to show Rimas Tuminas’ miraculous Eugene Onegin. The play unfolds in the memory and imagination of Pushkin’s characters. The images are split between past and present, between reality and imagination. The scale of the production constantly shifts from noisy celebrations to secluded contemplation, from crowd scenes to lonely recollections, all of which are drawn together from the past just like the fragments of Tatyana’s love letter, framed and hung on the wall, looming next to and above Onegin’s arm-chair.

 The play is shown in Russian with English subtitles. 

Tickets are free but limited. Please sign up here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/film-screening-evgenii-onegin-tickets-43127041141
