Tatyana

Deborah Colker Dance Company

Straight from the heart of Rio de Janeiro, Deborah Colker Dance Company transports Aleksandr Pushkin’s famous tale of young love, passion, obsession and rejection from 19th-century Russia to contemporary, sultry Brazil.

Young, wealthy and cosmopolitan, Eugene Onegin has seen and done it all. Bored by life in St Petersburg, he moves to the country in the hope of finding inspiration. There he meets the innocent and beautiful Tatyana who instantly falls in love with him, only to be coldly rejected. Years later, now back in St Petersburg, Onegin is enchanted by a glamorous high-society lady, Tatyana. The tables are turned, and Onegin begs for her affections. Will love prevail after all?

Straight from the heart of Rio de Janeiro, Deborah Colker Dance Company transports Aleksandr Pushkin’s famous tale of young love, passion, obsession and rejection from 19th-century Russia to contemporary, sultry Brazil. With typically explosive energy and choreography packed full of Brazilian colour and flair, Deborah Colker Dance Company’s seamless mixture of contemporary and classical dance has made it one of the most sought-after and exciting companies in the world.

With an eclectic soundtrack featuring music by Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky and Kraftwerk, this large-scale contemporary ballet combines compelling storytelling with a wonderfully inventive set to poignantly capture the intense emotional rollercoaster of this tale – from joyous elation to bitter disappointment and betrayal.
