One of the greatest contemporary ballet houses will be visiting Latvia - the Boris Eifman troupe from St Petersburg. Eifman’s Tchaikovsky. Pro et Contra is the result of the choreographer’s years-long contemplation of the great composer’s personality and creative world.
The choreographic narration of the new production, harmonious with the composer’s music in an emotionally-dramaturgical terms, shows variety and accurately conveys emotional experience of the characters. The ingenuity of the plastic language allowed Boris Eifman to explore insightfully the internal conflict, from which Tchaikovsky suffered painfully and which became a source of unbearable mental suffering and predestined the tragic confessional tone of his music.
