“The ballet world in search of a major choreographer need search no more. He is Boris Eifman.”
Boris Eifman revives his savage, sexy, and wildly popular Russian Hamlet in a refreshed production created to mark his Saint Petersburg company’s 40th anniversary in 2017. Featuring extravagant costumes, bold acting, and Eifman’s signature theatrical flair, the master choreographer tells the story of the House of Romanov in the 18th century, drawing parallels between the plight of Russia’s Prince Paul and the ill-fated Danish prince of Shakespeare’s play. The lavish staging and dramatically shifting choreography, set to music by Beethoven and Mahler, showcase “Eifman’s talent for grand-scale pictorial splendor, with performances of remarkable virtuosity, passion and depth” (Los Angeles Times).
Program notes will be available approximately one week before the performance.
This performance, as well as all remaining events on our 2020/21 Season, has been canceled. As large gatherings are still not allowed by state, local, and university officials at this time we regret to announce that we will be unable to present our spring 2021 performances as originally planned. Ticket holders are being notified by either mail or email.
