Tchaikovsky’s iconic opera Eugene Onegin will be staged in Sheffield City Hall’s art deco ballroom next week.
Performed in the round, the production will take advantage of the venue’s high ceilings and marble features, transporting the audience to the lavish dance halls and palaces of 19th century St Petersburg.
Widely regarded as Tchaikovsky’s greatest operatic work, Eugene Onegin is a tumultuous and epic Russian drama adapted from the great Pushkin novel, following the life of the disenchanted twenty-something-year old Eugene and the events that lead to his downfall.
Sheffield-based Opera on Location will present an innovative and exciting production that will delve into the story and shine a light on the difference between our public personas and our private identities, asking; when are we our true selves?
Eugene Onegin runs from August 19 to 22 at 7.30pm. Tickets £22, £19.80 (concessions). Contact 01142 789 789 or www.sheffieldcityhall.co.uk
