Eifman ballet NYC tour press-relise 

 

Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg will present the premiere of the ballet Up & Down

in New York

 

On May 22, 23, and 24, the St. Petersburg Eifman Ballet company will show, for the first time in New York, its new ballet Up & Down that takes audience to the volcanic Jazz Age. It premiered in Saint Petersburg in January, 2015. Later, the ballet was triumphantly presented in Paris at the Théâtre des Champs Elysées, as well as in Bratislava and Riga. The New York premiere will take place at the famous New York City Center, as part of the Company’s big North American tour.

 

The last time Eifman Ballet performed at this prestigious venue was March, 2012. The premiere of the ballet Rodin enjoyed great success at the New York City Center. The upcoming New York performances will continue the Company’s big Canada and USA tour that started in mid-April. Since then Eifman Ballet has visited Montreal, Toronto, Minneapolis, Boston, and Chicago. The Canadian audience saw Boris Eifman’s Anna Karenina. Rodin was presented in Minneapolis and Boston for the first time. Chicago dance art lovers already enjoyed the ballet Up & Down.

 

The performances are great success in North America. Almost every one ends with a standing ovation, enthusiastic shouts of the audience and repeated curtain calls. The audience keeps sharing opinions in the social media. ‘Outstanding performance!’, ‘Total perfection!’, ‘Fantastic!’ – those were the comments of the Canadian viewers to the ballet Anna Karenina. They are supported by the North American critics. Popular resource ManAbout MTL calls Boris Eifman’s Anna Karenina ‘one of the most beautiful performances’, and the largest Boston newspaper The Boston Globe describes Rodin as a thrilling psychodrama that is a significant step forward for the St. Petersburg choreographer.

Up & Down also got very enthusiastic reviews. According to Examiner.com, ‘the dancers shine as brightly as Eifman’s creativity’.

 

‘I am very pleased with how the North America tour goes. I am truly glad with the warm reception from the audience. Our mission is to present modern and original ballet art of Russia to the Western audience and to prove that the language of dance can solve great philosophical problems. I hope that the ballet ‘Up & Down’ will let the American audience discover new creative abilities of the St. Petersburg Eifman Ballet,’ Boris Eifman says.

The promoter of the North American tour of Eifman Ballet is Ardani Artists Management – a long-term partner of the Company, celebrating its 25th Anniversary in the 2014-2015 season.
