Olivier Award-winning OperaUpClose return to Harrogate Theatre with their new English version of Tchaikovskys sweeping Eugene Onegin.With a narrative that is both romantic and thought-provoking, the central character is the fiercely intelligent but naïve Tatyana, whose entanglement with Onegin results in a wiser, sadder but ultimately self-reliant heroine.
This new chamber version will transpose the story of Tatyanas sexual awakening to the early 1960s, a world on the cusp of the womens liberation movement when new thinking fought against the old ways. Infatuation and self-restraint do battle in a well-tailored world of sleek suits and full skirts, with seasonal allusions to the snow-swept Russian landscape of the original.
This is a coming-of-age story, a requiem for lost innocence and triumphant celebration of hard-won independence told through some of the most glorious vocal music ever written.
