About the Play:

Onegin is a full-length musical drama by Amiel Gladstone and Veda Hille. Based Alexander Pushkin's masterpiece novel in verse and the stunning opera by Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky, Onegin tells the love story of the innocent Tatyana and the self-obsessed aristocrat Onegin. This soaring musical adaptation begs you to answer the question, "Look around, look around, look around, Do you see someone worth dying for?

Onegin is a lush, passionate, and acclaimed musical about trying not to fall in love. Life is quiet on the Larin family's Russian country estate – until the charismatic Evgeni Onegin, a dashing but jaded aristocrat from St. Petersburg, inherits his uncle's estate in the country. His arrival ignites the romantic longings of its residents. Poet Vladimir Lensky dances with jealousy when his dear friend flirts with his fiancée. Even the reclusive young Tatyana falls hopelessly under the spell of the aloof Onegin and professes her love for the handsome rogue. But will Onegin embrace real love or simply skim its surface? Through Gladstone and Hille's original, dynamic score, audiences are swept into a musical experience as immersive as love itself.

Onegin premiered in 2016 at Goldcorp Stage at the BMO Theatre Centre in Vancouver, enjoyed a sold-out run with two holdovers, and an unprecedented ten Jessie Richardson Awards. Since then the play has been produced widely at professional theatres across Canada and in the US.

Cast: 3 women, 4 men
