Friedemann Vogel on ARTE TV in Onegin

For the first time, ballet fans will be able to enjoy John Cranko's Onegin on TV on 30 & 31 December. If you missed the cinema screening, here is your chance to catch the superlative Friedemann Vogel as ”the most elegant and elegiac Onegin of all time" (Suedwest Presse) in this stunning Stuttgart Ballet production on ARTE. Onegin is also available for purchase on Blu-Ray and DVD from Amazon

With his full-length ballet Onegin, John Cranko secured his place in the pantheon of great 20th century choreographers. Based on Alexander Pushkin's dramatic verse novel „Eugen Onegin", he tells the story of the arrogant and world weary aristocrat Onegin who rejects the love of the naïve country girl Tatiana only to realize - upon meeting her again years later - that in her he threw away the only woman who ever truly loved him.
