Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg

May 20-22, 2022

"Russian Hamlet"


Russia’s most inventive ballet company — and an Auditorium Theatre Visiting Resident Company returns to Chicago with company founder Boris Eifman’s reimagined Russian Hamlet. Eifman’s “extravagantly theatrical ballets” are “driven by powerful, boldly drawn emotions” (Toronto Star), performed expertly by “ravishing dancers who are highly accomplished technicians and artists” (Los Angeles Times). Eifman explores the full spectrum of human emotions in this story ballet that serves as “a catalyst for re-examining the soul-crushing alienation of unbridled ambition” (Chicago Tribune).
