Straight from the heart of Rio de Janeiro, Deborah Colker Dance Company transports Aleksandr Puskin's classic tale, Onegin, from 19th-century Russia to contemporary, sultry Brazil. Typically explosive energy and choreography packed full of Brazilian colour and flair combine with compelling storytelling with a wonderfully inventive set to poignantly capture the intense emotional rollercoaster - from joyous elation to bitter disappointment. Sponsored by Jenners, a House of Fraser store.
