If any full-length ballet from the second half of the 20 th Century has a chance at becoming a classic à la Swan Lake then, according to audiences, critics and dancers, it is John Cranko's Onegin.

Created in 1965 and based on the poem by Alexander Pushkin, the story of the young Tatyana, who falls in love with the arrogant dandy Onegin and who is cruelly rejected by him moved audiences worldwide from Beijing to New York. Onegin has been performed in Munich for 30 years, and many of the greatest dancers – from Eva Evdokimova to Konstanze Vernon, Evelyn Hart, Lucia Lacarra and Polina Semionova – have given the role their own unique, unmistakable personality. Hardly any other narrative ballet allows so many possibilities for character development than in the role of Tatyana: During the two and a half hour performance, Tatyana transforms from a dreamy, naive teenager to a mature woman, who must, in a final, dramatic confrontation, finally decide between passion and duty. Onegin returns to the Staatsballett programme in February after a three year break.
