Take a look
"Jevgeni Onegin..." Never has a name been uttered with more longing in a theatrical work than by Tatiana in the opera "Eugene Onegin" by the composer of composers, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, based on the novel of the same name by Alexander Pushkin. Rarely has a woman been more painfully rejected than Tatiana by Eugene.
This summer, Opera Spanga presents the opera classic "Eugene Onegin." This bursting-at-the-seams opera invites more than just singing. Opera Spanga invites Ivgi & Greben, the international dance company based in our own province of Friesland, to transform this unsurpassed painfully romantic opera into thrilling theater.
From July 20th to August 5th, we will be performing in Spanga in a semi-open tent with a view of the endless birch landscape of the Rottige Meente.
You will see Aylin Sezer as Tatiana, David Visser as Eugene Onegin, Itzel Medicigo as Olga, Juan Carlos Echeverry as Lensky, Catrin Wyn Davies as Larina, Annelies Lamm as Filippyevna, Galen Dole as Prince Gremin, Aaike Nortier as Monsieur Triquet, and Gertjan Put as Captain, accompanied by the Spanga Festival Choir and Orchestra, and the powerful dancers of Ivgi & Greben under the musical direction of Tjalling Wijnstra, in a direction by Corina van Eijk, Uri Ivgi, and Johan Greben.
The artistic team consists of Tania Ballve Fernandez (costume design), Pieter van Rooij and Edu de Jonge (set design), Henk Post (lighting design), and Laura de Jonge (makeup & hair design). The production is in the hands of Ewa Pradzynska-Kostecka in collaboration with Ype Terwisscha van Scheltinga and Amarins Geveke from Ivgi & Greben.
