Eifman Ballet St. Petersburg: Red Giselle

Powerful, passionate, raw and visceral, the internationally renowned Eifman Ballet is set to deliver its visually stunning production of Red Giselle to Toronto audiences.

The company is always a welcome addition, and this is their third visit to the Sony Centre since their Toronto debut in 2013, and an auspicious one as they celebrate their 40th Anniversary. Inspired by one of the 20th century’s greatest ballerinas, Olga Spessivtseva, Boris Eifman’s choreographic love letter to Spessivtseva’s tragic life draws parallels to the classic ballet Giselle, but is also a springboard for larger themes of politics vs. art and public vs. private personas in the age of celebrity. Red Giselle features Eifman’s signature choreography filled with highly charged performances and searing routines with “exuberant theatricality, boldly expressive movement and extraordinary dancing.” – Vogue. Sony Centre is pleased to co-present the Eifman Ballet with Show One Productions.
