In this vision of “Eugene Onegin” director Vasily Barkhatov doesn‘t strive to make the story contemporary – instead, he is trying to decode elements of meaning that are hidden in composer’s score.
In director’s view, “Eugene Onegin” is a story that transcends time. And although the costumes have rather strict historical implications, all dramas within the opera – meetings, separations, inevitable fate – are just as relevant today, as they were a long time ago.
