ABOUT ANNA KARENINA

Boris Eifman’s ballet Anna Karenina is a true burst of inner psychological energy and is amazingly precise in delivering emotional impact upon its viewers. By setting aside all secondary storylines in Leo Tolstoy’s novel, the choreographer focused on the love triangle “Anna - Karenin - Vronsky”. Using dance language, Boris Eifman in his ballet managed to portray the drama of a woman being reborn. According to the choreographer, it is the love passion, the “basic instinct” which has led the heroine to the breach of the then current norms of social morality, killed motherly love in Anna Karenina and destroyed her inner world. The choreographer says that his ballet speaks not of previous times but of today: the timeless emotional content of the performance and obvious parallels to reality can’t leave the contemporary viewer indifferent. The brilliant technical mastery of the company’s dancers and Boris Eifman’s astounding choreography present to us all the aspects and peripeteias of the Tolstoy’s novel in a remarkably impressive way.

 

ST. PETERSBURG EIFMAN BALLET

Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg was established by Boris Eifman in 1977 (the original name of the company was the Leningrad New Ballet). The concept of the New Ballet was more than innovative for its time: from the first days of its work it was conceived and developed as an experimental laboratory, a ballet theatre for one choreographer. Today Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg is renowned among ballet lovers all over the world for such repertoires as Tchaikovsky; Red Giselle, Anna Karenina, Requiem and etc. These works not only represent the highest artistic level of achievements of the contemporary Russian ballet, but also turn the audience to the immortal spiritual heritage of Russian and world culture that inspired the choreographer and his dancers.

 

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR & CHOREOGRAPHER | Boris Eifman

Boris Eifman, the founder of Eifman Ballet, is regarded as one of the leading choreographers in the world. He was born in Siberia in 1946 and received his ballet degree from the department of choreography of the Leningrad Conservatory in 1972. He has created more than forty ballet performances and obtained honorary titles such as the People’s Artist of Russia, the Laureate of the State Prize of the Russian Federation and many others. Forming a special and innovative repertoire based upon the rich traditions of Russian psychological theater, and new choreography of the 21th century are among the key priorities within the artistic mission of Boris Eifman and his company. He defines his genre as “psychological ballet”. “Throughout my creative life I’ve been expanding the boundaries of the ballet theatre and, first and foremost, searching for a body language capable of expressing the life of human spirit. Dance isn’t a physical process for me, but a spiritual one”, says Boris Eifman.

“The ballet world in search of a major choreographer need search no more. He is Boris Eifman!”
