A masterful reimagining of Pushkiní_s novel in verse, featuring two Onegins; one younger, charismatic, dismissive and indifferent, and the other an older Onegin (Makovetskiy), looking back on his life ruefully at an opportunity and love squandered. Referred to by Selena Davies of the Telegraph as íåOne of the most extraordinary evenings of theatre I have ever known,í¬ Rimas Tuminasí_ Eugene Onegin will leave you with enough memorable impressions to last a lifetime. Filmed before a live audience from Moscowí_s venerable Vakhtangov Theatre. English subtitles.
