Eifman Ballet visits the Finnish National Ballet

The  Eifman Ballet, led by Boris Eifman, will perform at the Finnish National Ballet in January 2017. Earlier visits by this well-known company based in St Petersburg have never failed to draw fascinated capacity crowds.

Tchaikovsky. PRO et CONTRA is an exploration of the mind and soul of Eifman’s favourite composer, Peter Tchaikovsky. The work was premiered in spring 2016.

Boris Eifman

Known for its pioneering efforts, this well-known modern ballet company is bringing two choreographies by its director Boris Eifman to Helsinki.

The other work on the programme is RODIN.
