ONEGIN - Arts Club ONEGIN (on-YAY-gin) - Vancouver Arts Club Theatre

It's Russia. It's winter. It's a long time ago...When Evgeni Onegin visits the Larin family estate, his romantic charms stir passions long forgotten by its residents.

This adaptation of the Tchaikovsky opera/Pushkin poem is a visceral experience of unrequited love. The characters' missed opportunities show us what happens when we don't embrace love when it comes. What it looks and feels like to turn away from its vitality and beauty.

The emotion does not feel Broadway-musical surface, but hits Russian-literature depths.: It is a searing love story with authenticity that cuts through the song-and-dance spectacle and strikes the audience at its core.

With book, music and lyrics by Amiel Gladstone and Veda Hille, Onegin had its world premiere in Vancouver, was held over twice, and won 10 of the 11 Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards in 2016 in the large theatre category. This is a not-to-be-missed production. It is spectacular.
