Onegin Blu-ray (Stuttgart Ballet)


  • John Cranko’s mastery of the art of the pas de deux finds its climax in Onegin, one of the most successful full length ballets of the 20th century. Set to music by Tchaikovsky, it tells Alexander Pushkin’s tragic love story of the world-weary aristocrat Onegin and the naïve country girl Tatiana in a superbly nuanced way. Featuring Friedemann Vogel and Alicia Amatriain, this production is a must for all lovers of dramatic, romantic ballets. With Onegin, John Cranko secured his place in the pantheon of great 20th century choreographers. He created the three act work for the Stuttgart Ballet - of which he was Director - in 1965 and revised the ballet two years later. Over the last 50 years, the ballet has entered the repertoire of almost every leading ballet company in the world, including the Paris Opera Ballet, the Royal Ballet, the Bolshoi Ballet, the Ballet of the Teatro alla Scala and the American Ballet Theatre.
