Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg

Did you see the incredible world premiere of Onegin this weekend?

Eifman Ballet of St. Peteresburg

What an absolutely stunning world premiere! Boris Eifman's modern-day take of Pushkin's 19th century novel, Eugene Onegin, was packed with contemporary Russian drama, brilliantly bold scenes, and astonishing movements from Russia's greatest dancers. Of course we would expect nothing less from Boris, who's often referred to as Russia's greatest living choreographer. Did you make it to the show? We'd love to hear what you thought!

In case you missed it, watch the performance preview with Boris Eifman and Northrop's Director Ben Johnson.
