19:00 Eugene Onegin
Liric scenes in three acts. Libretto by Pyotr Tchaikovsky and Konstantin Shilovsky based on the novel in verses of the same name by Alexander Pushkin. Music Director: Tugan Sokhiev. Stage Director: Yevgeny Arye. Set Designer: Simon Pastukh. Although, for almost 140 years this piece has never disappeared from the repertoire for a long time. Presented for the first time in 1881, Onegin withstood ten more productions and one revival, was premiered in Moscow, Kuibyshev and New York. Stage director Yevgeny Arye has been invited to create a new production of Onegin. "I want to give a gift for the audience and the theatre by releasing a traditional, but at the same time modern performance on the Historic Stage. Actually, I perceive Pushkin as my contemporary. Rereading Eugene Onegin, I am always amazed by how he maintains a dialogue with readers: such a direct conversation with the audience is practiced in theatres only the last 30-40 years! I guess Tchaikovsky was also enthralled with the poetry of Eugene Onegin’s world. It is very important to preserve the sincerity and freshness of this opera. But there is another precious thing to me — it is absolutely wonderful Pushkin’s irony, which I would like to translate into my performance," - Yevgeny Arye.
