Description Based on Alexander Pushkin's poem of love and rejection, this masterwork tells the tragic story of Tatiana, a native girl who impulsively bestows her passion and romantic ideals on Onegin, a sophisticated stranger from St. Petersburg. The Russian countryside and sparkling opulence of the imperial capital are brilliantly brought to life in John Cranko's Onegin which has been hailed as one of the greatest full-length ballets of this century.
