A collection of photos from outing to the Bolshoi Theatre New Stage to see ‘Evgenii Onegin‘ – a timeless Russian classic by Alexander Pushkin.
I had just finished the book (dual English and Russian version), so was mentally prepared for a bit of a literary slog. In buying the tickets, I was convinced it was a play, but only found out upon arrival that it was an opera. Luckily, they have screens on each side with subtitles in English. I’ll try anything once. Opera, tick.
