Based on the poem by Pushkin and the opera by Tchaikovsky, Onegin is a lush, passionate and acclaimed new musical about trying not to fall in love. When Onegin, a dashing but jaded aristocrat from St. Petersburg, inherits his uncle’s estate in the country, his arrival sets hearts afire and stirs the embers of jealousy. Even the reclusive young Tatyana falls hopelessly under the spell of the aloof Onegin, and professes her love for him. Will playing with lonely Russian hearts reap heartbreak or romance?
“You’re lucky to be alive right now. Do you know why? Because you get to see Onegin.” –The Georgia Straight (review of original Arts Club production)
