Lera Auerbach (b.1973): Tatiana, a ballet after Pushkin's 'Eugene Onegin', choreography by John Neumeier / Hamburg State Opera Ballet & PO, Simon Hewett [2 DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

In choreographic episodes, combining dream, memory, premonition and reality John Neumeier's ballet Tatiana brings to life the story of Tatiana, a young girl brought up in the Russian countryside and her first great love. When considering Pushkin's Eugene Onegin as a plot for a ballet, it was obvious that Neumeier would not be content with a simple story line. He was more interested in the complex strands of Tatiana's destiny, the influence of her early life, her experience and evolution into womanhood. As I read Pushkin's verse novel, I realised that I was fascinated by the role of Tatiana Larina. She became more profound and more interesting with every paragraph, every page that I read. And so I had the idea to explore her role and her perspective in more detail through my ballet", says Neumeier. "Nearly nobody else besides John Neumeier can tell story with the bodies of his dancers. Tatiana is three hours of danced poetry."
