Boris Eifman Ballet «Tchaikovsky. PRO et CONTRA»
June 2, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm€25 – €190
The ballet «Tchaikovsky. PRO et CONTRA» is a magnificent production of the choreographer’s reflections over many years as he studied the great composer Tchaikovsky’s personality and his unique world of musical creation. For this very special new masterpiece, the Boris Eifman ballet’s company of Saint-Petersburg has deservedly won the coveted prize, the Golden Soffit. Boris Eifman has related eloquently that having been turning to Tchaikovsky’s music for many years, he realized how deep and bottomless the composer’s world was. Eventually he came to an understanding of a variety of themes related to his creative life, his psychic identity and relationships with loved ones. «I wanted to create a work, in which I could delve deeper into the environment of Tchaikovsky’s creative torment.» The choreographic brilliance of the new production is perfectly in harmony with the composer’s music in emotionally dramaturgical terms. It displays wonderful variety and convincingly conveys the emotional journeys of each of the personalities.
Tickets range between 25 and 190 euros.
