»What appealed to me most about ›Onegin‹ is that the story is equally a myth and a comprehensible situation based on the emotions.« John Cranko’s ballet »Onegin« is one of the South African choreographer’s masterpieces and at the same time one of the most famous and successful story ballets of the 20th century. Set to various works by composer Piotr I. Tchaikovsky, although not to his opera »Eugen Onegin«, Cranko tells the tragic love story of the young woman Tatjana and the story’s anti-hero Onegin. The choreographer skillfully manages to alternate between big ensemble scenes and intimate moments of the four main characters and to convey the plot through movement in such a way that neither a previous reading of the verse novel by Alexander Pushkin nor a specific knowledge of the vocabulary of classical ballet is necessary. Always looking at the characters as through a burning glass, he creates their emotions as the motor of his dramaturgy, which has moved and thrilled audiences worldwide for more than 50 years. After premiering with the Stuttgart Ballet in 1965, the ballet has been a permanent part of the Vienna State Ballet’s repertoire since 2006 and will return in the 2021/22 season.
