Stage Russia HD opens its inaugural season with its live filmed production of the Vakhtangov Theatre's magical EUGENE ONEGIN, a newly reimagined version of the Alexander Pushkin poem created and directed by renowned director Rimas Tuminas. Tuminas’ reimagining unfolds in the memory and imagination of Pushkin’s characters. The images are split between past and present, between reality and imagination. The scale of the production constantly shifts from noisy celebrations to secluded contemplation, from crowd scenes to lonely recollections, all of which are drawn together from the past just like the fragments of Tatyana’s love letter, framed and hung on the wall, looming next to and above Onegin’s arm-chair. Presented in Russian with English subtitles. Running Time 198 minutes; one intermission.
