Russian choreographer Boris Eifman is famous for his biographical and lengthy narrative ballets, which he usually presents with his own company, the Eifman Ballet St. Petersburg, on extended guest performance trips.

In Tchaikovsky, the multi-faceted personality of the great composer provides the focus. Peter I. Tchaikovsky decided to give up his secure, bourgeois position in order to dedicate himself entirely to the creation of the music by which he was so passionately driven. However, a feeling of deeply felt internal unrest and homelessness haunted him for the rest of his life. His emotional strife finds expression in his compositions.
