VIDEO: Prokofiev's Eugene Onegin Premiered Onstage With Ballroom Dance
A unique performance at Princeton University marks the first 'staging' of Eugene Onegin with music by Prokofiev, interpreted through ballroom dance. This innovative collaboration combines the forces of the Princeton Symphony Orchestra (conductor Rossen Milanov), the Princeton University Glee Club, and Princeton University Ballroom Dance Club. Dancer and choreographer Sydney Schiff, a 2010 graduate of Princeton, plays the lead role of Tatyana.
