June 2nd, 2018 at 8 pm – GRIMALDI FORUM – PRINCES ROOM – RUSSIAN GALA – Boris Eifman Ballet – Tchaikovsky – PRO and CONTRA – Today, Boris Eifman presents a new and original choreographic creation that corresponds to the modern artistic and technical possibilities of ballet: Tchaikovsky – PRO and CONTRA is the result of a long reflection of the choreographer on the personality and the creative world of the great Russian composer. For this new creation, the Boris Eifman Ballet Company in St. Petersburg received the special Golden Soffit Expert Committee Award. “For many years, I have discovered the musical world of Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and realized how profound and infinite the composer’s world was. I understood by immersing myself in his music, a multitude of themes related to his musical creation, his psychic identity, and relationships with his relatives. But, I did not feel this immense wealth earlier, and I wanted to dive deeper into the environment of Tchaikovsky’s creative torment, “he says. The choreographic narration of Boris Eifman Ballet’s new production PRO ET CONTRA, is in keeping with the composer’s music in a great and precise dramaturgical emotion.
