St. Petersburg’s Eifman Ballet goes on the U.S. tour

St. Petersburg’s Eifman Ballet has premiered a new work based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel “Tender Is the Night” set to music by George Gershwin, Franz Schubert and Alban Berg. The ballet will be part of the company’s U.S. tour later this spring.

The book, first published in 1934, tells the story of a young psychoanalyst and his wife, who is also his patient, and their doomed relationship. The action takes place in the south of France in the 1920s. Eifman emphasizes the rise and fall of the character’s fortunes in his ballet, which he has entitled "Up & Down."

 In April, the Eifman Ballet will being a U.S. tour planned to last two months. The troupe will perform “Up & Down” and “Rodin”. Boris Eifman’s ballet Rodin tells about the life and work of two great sculptors: Auguste Rodin and his disciple, mistress and Muse – Camille Claudel.
