With his full-length ballet Onegin, John Cranko secured his place in the pantheon of great 20th century choreographers. Based on Alexander Pushkin’s dramatic verse novel „Eugen Onegin“, he tells the story of the arrogant and world weary aristocrat Onegin who rejects the love of the naïve country girl Tatiana only to realize - upon meeting her again years later - that in her he threw away the only woman who ever truly loved him. When he seeks her out to confess his love, Tatiana, by now matured and married to Prince Gremin, rejects Onegin although she secretly still loves him.

On the occasion of its 50th anniversary the Stuttgarter Ballett has come up with a special cast featuring Alicia Amatriain as Tatjana, Friedemann Vogel as Onegin, Elisa Badenes as Olga, David Moore as Lenski, Jason Reilly as Prince Gremin, Melinda Witham as Madame Larina and no other than the wonderful Marcia Haydée as nurse.

Unitel, in co-production with NHK (and we welcome further partners) will produce this masterwork for the first time ever in Ultra High Definition, alongside “Romeo und Julia” and “The Taming of the Shrew” by John Cranko & Stuttgarter Ballett.
