Eifman Ballet Brings UK Premiere of RODIN and More to the Coliseum, Now thru April 19

EIFMAN BALLET, founded by its visionary Artistic Director Boris Eifman 37 years ago and still based in the exquisite Russian city of St Petersburg, returns to London in April with the UK premiere of 'RODIN', based on the life of the sculptor and artist Auguste Rodin, and 'ANNA KARENINA' based on the novel by Leo Tolstoy.

EIFMAN BALLET at the LONDON COLISEUM 2014:

RODIN April 15th, 16th, 17th at 7.30pm

ANNA KARENINA April 19th at 2pm and 7.30pm

Ticket prices: £10 - £65 plus booking fee; concessions available. Box office: www.eno.org or 020 7845 9300.

The Coliseum performances are part of the UK-Russia Year of Culture 2014 organised by the British Council and the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs celebrating a wide ranging programme of UK cultural projects taking place across Russia and an unprecedented showcase of Russian culture in the UK.

'Rodin' is dedicated to the creative work and fate of the great sculptors Auguste Rodin and Camille Claudel, Rodin's student, lover, and muse. The premiere was held in St Petersburg in November 2011; and has toured to the US and Canada, the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow and again in St Petersburg in September 2013 as part of the G20 summit official cultural programme.

Boris Eifman: "In our performance, using the language of dance, we talk about passion, inner struggle and despair, all the phenomena of the human spirit that were brilliantly expressed by Rodin and Camille in bronze and marble. Rodin is a reflection on the extreme price that people of genius have to pay for the creation of eternal masterpieces. And of course it's a reflection on those torments and mysteries of creative process that will always be of concern to any artist."

CAMILLE Lyubov Andreyeva
