The Critically Acclaimed and International Hit




Eifman Ballet, who tour the world constantly to packed houses and have critics around the world reaching for superlatives, will make its Australian debut in August with two of its most acclaimed productions – Anna Karenina and Tchaikovsky – for a strictly limited season in both Sydney and Melbourne.

Anna Karenina

Plunging audiences into the grand world of 19th century aristocratic Russia.  We meet Anna, her dour husband, Karenin, and her lover, Vronsky.  Swept on the tide of her passion for Vronsky, Anna is prepared to sacrifice everything: husband, son and social standing for her shallow and narcissistic lover.  Anna Karenina is a ballet in 2 acts with choreography by Boris Eifman and music by Tchaikovsky.



Set to music from some of Tchaikovsky’s most revered works are scenes that are alternately poignant and disturbing: a flock of white swans appears promising serenity and happiness, but there is also an ominous and menacing flock of black birds before, finally, we see the Prince from Sleeping Beauty, the ideal of Tchaikovsky’s longing, and forever unattainable.  Pyotr Tchaikovsky composed divine music but in the background there was a distressed, unhappy man plagued by inner torment.
