"The hottest ticket in town...strikes the audience at its core"
- The Globe and Mail

Coming Soon To...

Onegin was commissioned and premiered at the Arts Club in Vancouver, and then further developed at Musical Stage in Toronto.  Two versions of the show went on to tour in the West and to the National Arts Centre. The US Premiere took place at Greater Boston Stage Company and the Russian Premiere is at the Taganka Theatre in Moscow, opening December 2021.

After Craigslist Cantata—a play about disconnection—we wanted to do something about connection, a story that could challenge our sometimes corseted Canadian sensibilities. Something where the audience could swoon and get swept away. Something full of grand gestures, dance, and light. Something honest but also modern. Because in the age of the cynic, where does the romantic fit? We adapted freely from Pushkin’s original poem and Tchaikovsky’s opera to give audiences the visceral experience of unrequited love. The characters’ missed opportunities show us what happens when we don’t embrace love when it comes. What it looks and feels like to turn away from its vitality and beauty. Ultimately, the show is our celebration of love. Our love of the theatre, our love for performing, our love for making things together, our love of the audience and your connection to what we create. - Amiel Gladstone and Veda Hille​
