New English chamber version of Tchaikovsky’s sweeping opera transposes the story of Tatyana’s sexual awakening to the early 1960s, a world on the cusp of the women’s liberation movement when new thinking stood up to the old ways.

Infatuation and self-restraint do battle in a well-tailored world of sleek suits and full skirts, with seasonal allusions to the snow-swept Russian landscape of Alexander Pushkin’s original novel.

“Ambitious and superbly-sung pocket-sized production.”

The Stage (Other reviewers)

“Big voices emote almost into your face... Piano, violin, cello and clarinet — all competently played, but sounding thin.”

Other newspaper reviewers

“Pared back... but [Norton-Hale and Holford]...pack the opera's tragedy into the Arcola's Studio 1 with great skill and sympathy”

Gary Naylor (Broadway World)

“Intense and multi-layered... The ten-strong cast: exceptional... An artful reduction of the opera's sweeping score”

Mark Valencia (What's On Stage)
