Why See Eifman Ballet: Tchaikovsky?
Ballet and the music of Tchaikovsky are synonymous with each other, with the great composer having created several of the most famous musical accompaniments to dance in the world; Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, Onegin and Anna Karenina. As part of its current North American tour, this two-date engagement in Los Angeles sees the legendary St Petersburg-based Eifman Company perform a full-length, specially created ballet that celebrates and explores the life of Tchaikovsky himself, through showcasing his artistic creations and often-tortured concealed sexuality. A new and exciting vision of the great composer himself, through the medium of ballet.
Created by Boris Eifman in 1993, his contemporary biographically inspired work showcases both classic and contemporary choreography, whilst throwing new light onto Tchaikovsky’s complicated personal life, and his often arduous journey through the creative process. The orchestra plays a set of Tchaikovsky's most popular pieces, whilst the narrative brings forth familiar characters from the composer's work who appear as fantastical creatures such as demons and fairies fairies, pushing and pulling him between the throes of passion and torment.
Opening night: 23 June 2017
