Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg Tchaikovsky. PRO et CONTRA

  • Sony Centre for the Performing Arts 1 Front Street West Toronto, ON, M5J 2X5 Canada (map)

"A swirling, vivid panorama of emotions and settings."  - The New York Times

The immortal music and agonized life of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky are cast in a bold new light through the eyes of Russian choreographer Boris Eifman.

Returning for their fourth anticipated Toronto engagement, the dramatic intensity and exquisite artistry of Eifman Ballet invites viewers into the brilliant mind and tumultuous struggles of the unparalleled composer, Tchaikovsky.

This emotionally gripping production, which premiered in 1993 in St. Petersburg and has since toured the globe to enormous acclaim, uses state-of-the-art technology to share a surreal – at times hallucinatory - vision of the artist’s life. The narrative soars on a score featuring some of the composer’s most beloved symphonies and ballets, including Swan LakeSleeping Beauty, and The Nutcracker
