Gala Russe : Boris Eifman Ballet – Tchaïkovski. PRO and CONTRA


The Grimaldi Forum Monaco is honouring the Gala Russe at Salle des Princes on 02 June, 2018.



Today, Boris Eifman offers a new, original choreographic creation that corresponds to the modern artistic and technological possibilities of the ballet theatre – Tchaikovsky. PRO et CONTRA. PRO et CONTRA is the result of the choreographer’s years-long contemplation of the great composer’s personality and creative world.


The ballet ensemble of the production was awarded a special prize of the Golden Soffit’s expert board. “Having been turning to Tchaikovsky’s music for many years, I realized how deep and bottomless the composer’s world was. I came to understanding of a variety of themes related to his creative life, his psychic identity, relationship with loved ones. All this was not sufficiently studied by me earlier. I wanted to create a work, in which I could delve deeper into the environment of Tchaikovsky’s creative torment,” Eifman resumes.


The choreographic narration of the new production, harmonious with the composer’s music in an emotionally-dramaturgical term, shows variety and accurately conveys emotional experience of the characters.
