An outstanding master of stage, famous theatrical provocateur Hermanis and a genius of all times Pushkin.
Here, before our eyes, Eugene Onegin in Hermanis's version will truly turn into the Encyclopedia of Russian life...
Yes, the center is not so much Pushkin's plot, but the historical context.
That distant life, of which we know so little
Life, customs, habits of the Russian nobility of the 19th century becomes the focus of attention. Time, ideas, ideals, people - its scope.
A play, the main weapon of which is irony, so consonant with Pushkin.
This version is not a textbook of customs and manners, but a graceful balancing between the rational and the sensual, prose and poetry, literature and theater.
An entrance ticket to Russian culture.
