Eifman Ballet Tour

 

 

Recall that the St. Petersburg Eifman Ballet performed the ballet Roden, her Eternal Idol at the Bolshoi Theatre of Belarus in 2015, the dramatic story Red Giselle in 2016 and The Pygmalion Effect in June 2022.

Boris Eifman's name is always associated with the most interesting artistic experiments and bold readings of classical works. In March 2024, the Eifman Ballet will perform on the stage of the Bolshoi Theatre of Belarus Eugene Onegin based on the novel in verse by Alexander Pushkin (staged in 2009) and a choreographic interpretation of Anton Chekhov’s play The Seagull. A Ballet Story (staged in 2022).

 

On 28 and 29 March: The Seagull. A Ballet Story. Ballet in 2 acts to the music by Sergei Rachmaninoff and Alexander Sitkovetsky

 

 

 

 

This choreographic interpretation of Anton Chekhov’s masterpiece could be entitled The Mysteries Behind the Curtain. This phrase, though, which could perhaps initially be seen as an encompassing résumé of the production, is in fact only a superficial reflection of its conception.

The Seagull. A Ballet Story plunges the audience into the unique world of backstage – filled with electrifying passion, enticing and striking in its contrasts. In this world love affairs are entangled with the torment of the creative process, personal dramas are entwined with the mysterious origins of the works of artists. “Discovering the unknown” in Chekhov’s iconic text, Boris Eifman explores how art emerges from the endless and diverse stream of life, which brings together the uplifting and the demeaning, the eternal and the ephemeral.

 

On 30 and 31 March: Eugene Onegin. Ballet in 2 acts to the music by Pyotr Tchaikovsky and Alexander Sitkovetsky

 

 

 

 

Eugene Onegin is a dance version of Eugene Onegin novel in verse by Alexander Pushkin. Here Eifman combines classics and modernity. Pushkin's heroes impersonalize men and women of today in a symbolic way: they are those who have gone through a drastic social change, who are living in the time of crisis, at the turn of the century. An unexpected combination of classical music by Pyotr Tchaikovsky and of rock music by Alexander Sitkovetsky is something that surprisingly helps the viewers get inspired by the original creative concept of the choreographer.

Eugene Onegin ballet is a unique opportunity to see the paradigmatic, textbook literary plot through the eyes of the modern man.
