Timofei Kulyabin is one of Russia’s most celebrated young theater directors, and his version of Alexander Pushkin’s verse “Yevgeny Onegin” has been equally celebrated – with sell-out performaces and two Golden Mask Awards, Russia’s highest theater prize. 

Kulyabin’s “Onegin” is set in today’s world – albeit a very sparsely inhabited and decorated world – and does not have a huge cast of characters, Russian balls, coquettish glances over a fan, or elaborate costumes and strange hairdos.

It has four main characters – Onegin, Tatyana, Olga and Lensky – and their tragic tale told by the actors using physical theater while Pushkin’s glorious verse is narration, writes The Moscow Times.

To watch the play, visit The Moscow Times here.
