Étoile Roberto Bolle (5, 8, 15, 17 Nov.)

A young aristocrat, bored with life, lets his one true, great love slip through his fingers, thinking it a game, only realizing his error later. Onegin, perfect example of a modern dance drama, is inspired by Pushkin’s novel in verse, which John Cranko rewrote with masterful sensitivity: a story of unhappy love, with pas-dedeux of extraordinary expressivity, characters sculpted with precision, and splendid company dances to music by Tchaikovsky, without a single note from the opera of the same name.
