"Who are you, my angel is a guardian or an artful tempter: let my doubts decide."
Tatyana's letter ... Such sincere ... She wrote it in French. "She did not know Russian well, she did not read our magazines and explained herself with difficulty in her native language."
Suppose that Onegin did not know French well? He could misunderstand Tatiana, the Russian soul, which is infinitely far away to Onegin.
He and himself are bored. He runs away from himself, travels to different countries, but the hard grip of the spleen does not let him go for a minute.
The whirlwind of a noisy ball in a noble assembly. Only this ball takes place in the snow-covered summer garden, in St. Petersburg.
And where the ball, there is joy and laughter, music and ballet, opera arias and home music making, masks and intrigues.
Or is it not a ball, but a magic dream that Tatiana dreams about? It is possible that she foresees her near future. Very soon she will become a noble lady.
Wherever there was a dear Tatyana, in a native estate of family Larinyh or in huge halls of the Moscow private residence, she dreams of love.
But her chosen one is not the romantic hero she invented herself.
Onegin did not live up to her expectations.
So he went through life past her ... "And happiness was so possible, so close."
“ Beautiful, spectacular, but for me it was protracted. Literally before Vakhtangovsky Onegin, I went to the Onegin show, staged by SAM (Commonwealth of Actors and Musicians). And after they were staged, where Chonishvili was one of the main reciters, it was extremely difficult for me to listen to Makovetsky in Vakhtangov. Perhaps, if there had been Guskov, the performance would have been perceived differently. Guskova heard later in the play Onegin-blues (another of Onegin's variations, which she saw as many as 4 that season). Only in the second act, at the sight of the wagon under a snowstorm, did my heart tremble and accept the production.
“ Great, great, awesome! Comedy and tragedy, love and egoism, classic and fresh look are intertwined in the performance. Yes, this statement cannot be called classical, but it feels love for the original, for the author and art in general. This is far from a vulgar interpretation, and the actors with such tenderness, with such rapture and penetration, pronounce the text of Pushkin, which captures the spirit. On the "Onegin" Tuminas want to look endlessly. Thank!
“ My wife, son, and I go to theaters infrequently, on average 5-6 times a year. I like the GAMT very much, recently went to Et Cetera on Kalyagin's “Faces,” In indescribable delight. On this wave went to Vakhtangov. Bought for the name (the son needs to study at school), the awards of the performance and the busy actors. The impression ... For the first time we left the play during the intermission. And this is not disrespect for the actors (judging by the prices for a ticket, their fee is not bad). By no means. Just so mock Pushkin, we could not bear. Still, one feels the attitude of the director to the author in particular and to the people, apparently, as a whole. Some kind of sur. Why does Olga need an accordion and why does she go with him all the time? Why Onegin two (although his wife said that there were three of them like), two Lena? In general, it is a pity that such performances receive Golden Masks. From now on we will be more careful with modern readings of the classics. I can not recommend this performance to an amateur. We definitely did not like it. It's a pity...
