Ballet in three acts after Alexander Puschkin (1965)

recommended for 10 years and older

Duration est. 2 hours 30 minutes

Created in 1965 and based on the poem by Alexander Pushkin, the story of the young Tatjana, who falls in love with the arrogant dandy Onegin and who is cruelly rejected by him moved continues to move audiences worldwide. Onegin has been performed in Munich for over 40 years, and many of the greatest dancers – from Eva Evdokimova to Konstanze Vernon, Evelyn Hart, Lucia Lacarra and Natalia Osipova have given the role their own unique, unmistakable personality. Hardly any other narrative ballet allows so many possibilities for character development than in the role of Tatjana: During the two and a half hour performance, Tatjana transforms from a dreamy, naive teenager to a mature woman, who must, in a final, dramatic confrontation, finally decide between passion and duty.
