ONEGIN, Red Torch Theatre

Stage Russia HD un CREA Promotion presents cinema broadcast of theatre play Onegin at Splendid Palace cinema theatre, which was produced at Red Torch Theatre in Novosibirsk, Russia.

Timofey Kulyabin's Golden Mask Award winning Onegin removes all expectations of Pushkin's novel in verse and places in today's world, immersed in the inner thoughts, hopes, despairs, passions and disappointments that drift in, through and around the 4 central figures, Onegin, Tatiana, Olga and Lensky. There are no grand balls, no fans, no lorgnettes, no "Encyclopedia of Russian life". Just a quiet love story that perfectly conveys the attitude of the great poet and how very much his masterwork still resonates with our 21st century reality.

Project is presented in Russian with English Subtitles and Latvian synchro translation Duration is 2 hours and 40 minutes with intermission Event will take place on February 8th at 7 pm at Splendid Palace cinema theatre
