Catalyst Theatre launches a new programming initiative, Catalyst Presents, with the hit indie-rock musical, Onegin (on – YEG – in), the multi-award-winning production that is taking Canada by storm! Winning an unprecedented 10 Jessie Awards (Vancouver), this thrilling new adaptation of Pushkin’s timeless poem and Tchaikovsky’s renowned opera, brings a thoroughly modern sensibility to a romantic Russian classic. This high-energy musical tells a sweeping tale of infatuation, unrequited love, and intrigue.
Onegin tells the story of Eugene Onegin, a wealthy Russian playboy who, bored with seducing women in Moscow, sees a chance for a change when he inherits a country estate. He soon becomes fast friends with his new neighbour, Vladmir, who introduces Onegin to his love, Olga. Olga’s sister, Tatyana, falls madly in love with Onegin, but instead Onegin sets his sights on Olga, rejecting Tatyana. In a jealous rage, Vladimir challenges Onegin to a duel, and what ensues changes everyone’s lives forever.
