John Cranko's Onegin holds a special place in the choreographic reportory of the second half of the 20th century as one of the few original full-length ballets. It is not only the tragic love story of Tatiana and Onegin or its masterful choreography that deeply touches the audience, but also its music. For years, an enthusiastic public around the world has been asking for a recording of Onegin. This project has been in the making for a long time and we are proud to be able to present you with the first official recording of this wonderful ballet.
