If there is one work that is still associated with John Cranko 50 years after his death, it is Onegin. Without a doubt, this ballet secured his fame and artistic immortality. The ballet combines all the characteristics that distinguish his pieces: dramaturgical clarity, believable, human emotions and breathtaking choreography. Based on the eponymous verse novel by Alexander Pushkin, Cranko tells the story through pure movement, eschewing pantomime. Like an open book, the plot unfolds before the audience's eyes, sweeping them up in the protagonist’s emotional turmoil.

Onegin breaks hearts: first that of the young Tatjana and ultimately his own. He stalks through life as an arrogant snob, not realizing that behind the ugly duckling a desirable woman lies. Years later, he wants to conquer the beautiful swan only to face the bitter realization that he missed his chance. While he has wasted his life, Tatjana has gone her way. Even though she still harbors feelings for him, she preserves her honor as a married woman and remains steadfast despite his expressions of love. The tables have turned; there is no going back.

For Cranko, Jürgen Rose created opulent sets and costumes. He brings the garden idyll and country festivities to life just as precisely, colorfully and lavishly as the aristocratic ball. Kurt-Heinz Stolze arranged the music of Peter Tchaikovsky especially for John Cranko, so that the music and the dance are equally heightened in drama.
