South Africa’s John Cranko began his career dancing with Sadler’s Wells Theatre Ballet and Sadler’s Wells Ballet at Covent Garden. At only 23 years of age, he began his choreographic career, creating many ballets for Sadler’s Wells and the Royal Ballet. Cranko accepted an invitation to become director of the Stuttgart Ballet in 1961, and turned the provincial German company into one of the world’s leading ensembles, with a team of superb dancers – such as Haydée, Barra, and Cragun. His early death from a heart attack was a tremendous loss to the international ballet world, as well as to Stuttgart. As a choreographer, he was one of the few in the late 20th century to create creditable full-length story ballets. He could handle comedy, tragedy, and romance equally well, and his productions of Romeo and Juliet, Onegin, and The Taming of the Shrew have become mainstays of the international repertoire.

‘A feverish romance…’ –Toronto Sun
A true masterpiece of the ballet repertoire, Onegin is presented by West Australian Ballet for the first time. Inspired by Alexander Pushkin’s great novel, John Cranko reinterprets this compelling tale with mastery and sensitivity. Featuring an unusual twist of double unrequited love, a disillusioned young aristocrat rejects, in sport, the woman he later recognises as his true love. Set to Tchaikovsky’s powerful score, this passionate tale unleashes heartbreaking themes of ill-fated love, anguish, and tragic irony.
If you sighed for Romeo & Juliet you’ll swoon for Onegin.
