Why See Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg - Pygmalion?
A much anticipated return
The esteemed Eifman Ballet of Pygmalion returns in 2019 with their newest premiere for North American audiences, Artistic Director Boris Eifman's own, comedic interpretation of the classical Greek myth of an artist who falls for his own creation.
First seen in Ovid the story of Pygmalion has inspired creators all over the world for a millennia, with each generation spinning their own threads around the story. Now Eifman re-visits the tale, adding his famed flair for theatricality, innovation and controversy for this upcoming ballet, with music from Johann Strauss.
The young Boris Eifman created his own ballet company in 1977, with the goal of solely performing his own work. It has become famous for its innovative and unabashedly radical approach to the art form, often drawing inspiration from classical literature and theatre - past ballets have included The Seagull, Twelfth Night and many more enchanting and moving works.
Performance date: 17 May 2019

This is one time where all the hype and hoopla is not only justified, but doesn't come close to suggesting the grandeur of the work on stage. A Triumph.
