Timofey Kulyabin’s award-winning Onegin removes all expectations of Pushkin’s novel in verse and places you not in some historical epoch, but in today’s world.
There are no grand balls, no fans, no lorgnettes, no “Encyclopedia of Russian life”. Just a quiet love story that perfectly conveys the attitude of the great poet and how very much his masterwork still resonates with our 21st century reality.
Performed in Russian with English subtitles. Pavel Polyakov stars in the title role.
