The Eifman Ballet at the London Coliseum
The Eifman Ballet comes to the London Coliseum Tuesday 3rd April – Saturday 7th April 2012 with four performances of two UK premières.
Acclaimed as Russia’s greatest living choreographer, Boris Eifman presents in Britain for the first time two of his master works:
Anna Karenina – Eifman’s award winning ballet tells the tale of Tolstoy’s famous literary figure with a visceral energy that makes this production unforgettable. He questions is it more important to preserve an illusion of harmony between duties and emotions, or yield to true passions?
Onegin – the compelling classic Russian romance, a heartbreaking tale of infatuation, passion and intrigue.
Taken from Russia’s great literary masterpieces by Leo Tolstoy and Alexander Pushkin. These classics are made into modern dramatic dance dramas by Boris Eifman, a master of theatre as well as a superb maker of dances, and set to the music of Russia’s foremost composer P. I.Tchaikovsky with the added fusion of A.Sitkovetsky’s contemporary rock music in Onegin.
Performed by the superb Eifman Ballet based in Russia’s great city St. Petersburg on their first visit to the London Coliseum.
