The Program in Theater presents
Eugene Onegin
Overview|Press Release

Eugene OneginOn Friday, February 10 at 8:00 p.m. the Program in Theater will open the world premiere production of the full Krzhizhanovsky-Pushkin Eugene Onegin, in a verse translation by James E. Falen with the cooperation of Caryl Emerson, directed by Theater Program Acting Director Tim Vasen and acted by a cast of Princeton undergraduates, with incidental music performed on piano by Anna Tchetchetkine ’12 and set design by Anya Klepikov. In this production the full playscript will be united and performed for the first time ever with the music. This version will honor the constricted, intimate feel of Krzhizhanovsky’s text — much of which takes place in dreams, hallucinations, frost-laden corners, window sills, door jambs, fog, mist, storm, black trees in a blizzard, or inside the heads of Tatyana and Eugene. The February 10 opening is by invitation; however the production will be repeated and open to the public on February 11, 12, 16, 17 and 18 at 8:00 p.m. in the Marie and Edward ’53 Matthews Acting Studio at the Lewis Center for the Arts, 185 Nassau Street.
