Eugen Onegin
Eugen Onegin bears the signature of director Carlos Wagner and set and costume designer Marnik Baert.

Is it reality, a dream or a flash back?

De Standaard

Set designer Marnik Baert, however, came up with another inventive idea. The epic is set between the blueprints of the ship's plans.
