    Rimas Tuminas in his production of “Eugene Onegin” does not aim at a full scenic adaptation of A.S. Pushkin’s novel in verse. For his main theme, he chooses a story of Tatyana’s love for Onegin, a story with prologue and epilogue. The performance unfolds in the memory and imagination of A.S.Pushkin’s characters. We are transferred from Onegin’s room into his country estate, then into the Larin’s house nearby, then to Moscow – and finally back to his room. The scale of events constantly changes: from noisy celebrations to secluded contemplation, from crowd scenes to lonely recollections, all of which are drawn together from the past just like the fragments of Tatyana’s love letter, framed and hung on the wall next to Onegin’s arm-chair.
