"The ballet world in search of a major choreographer need search no more. He is Boris Eifman."—The New York Times
For 40 years, across a shifting political climate for artists in his native Russia, the defiantly controversial choreographer Boris Eifman has created "works that hinge on extreme theatricality, acrobatic pas de deux, and spectacular effects" (The New Yorker) for his Saint Petersburg company. In Eifman's productions, the costumes are sumptuous, the dancing is exquisite, and the drama is riveting. Here, the company performs a brand new ballet, The Pygmalion Effect, set to a score by Johann Strauss Jr. "This Russian dancemaker and his dancers are among the most fascinating artists before the public today" (San Francisco Chronicle).
