Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg: Onegin
CHICAGO  •  Auditorium Theatre  •  Ongoing

A new full-length story ballet from choreographer Boris Eifman. His company is known for its technique and dramatic interpretation. In this Chicago premiere, Eifman brings Pushkin's tale of love, rejection and regret to life.

"I transported Pushkinís characters to our times, placing them in new circumstances, more dramatic, even extreme, when the old world is collapsing and life dictates new rules. I needed that experiment in order to answer the question that troubles me: what is the Russian soul today? Has it preserved its uniqueness, its mystery, its attraction? What would the novelís characters do with their lives today? What in the novel was just a reflection of the times and what was a sign of the destiny of many generations of my fellow countrymen?"  - Boris Eifman
