"You're lucky to be alive right now because you get to see Onegin." - The Georgia Straight
Arts Club Theatre returns with the smash hit Onegin, a passionate new musical featuring a stirring score and a timeless story of love and jealously. It's winter in Russia long, long ago, and Evgeni Onegin is visiting the Larin family home. When his presence stirs romance and passion long forgotten by its residents, relationships are torn apart by jealousy and swords clash in an epic duel. Onegin sold out its 3.5 week premiere run, and has audiences buzzing more than any new work the Arts Club has ever released.
Based on Pushkin's original poem and Tchaikovsky's opera of the same name, Onegin is written by Amiel Gladstone and Veda Hille. Having worked together on other hit shows like Do You Want What I Have Got? A Craigslist Cantata and East Van Panto, the ingenious musical theatre duo complement each other's best qualities. Directed by Gladstone with musical direction by Hille, who also acts as one of the onstage musicians, Onegin is the team's first co-written full-length musical.
Cleaning up at the Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards, Onegin brought home Outstanding Production, Outstanding Direction, Outstanding Performance by and Actor and Actress in a Lead Role, Outstanding Original Composition, Significant Artistic Achievement and many more.
Full of exquisite dancing, terrific costumes, and bold lighting, Onegin sweeps audiences away to Russia with swooning music and compelling performances. Don't miss it!
