Auditorium Staff Reviews of Eifman Ballet's "Onegin"

Here's what some of our staff members have to say about last night's performance by the Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg:

Kathy Bliss, Executive Assistant: The genius of Eifman evokes the full emotion of the classic story ballet through a uniquely contemporary vision. Superb theatricality; drama -dance or dance-drama. Bold visuals and strong character development. A minimum set creates a maximum setting and the lighting is indeed a "character" in its sheer perfection. The corps is a voice that resonates throughout.

Nicole Losurdo, Director of Education: It was absolutely unbelievable – sign me up for the Eifman fan club. Every theatre person needs to see this kind of work – it speaks volumes on levels, spatial relationship, balance and counter balance, and human emotion. I was very inspired and the music was also really exciting. It is very emotional work and the dancers are expressive in ways I have never seen dancers communicate. It was visual eye candy and the lighting is absolute genius. It can tend to feel a little self serving and self involved, but strangely – it works.
Amanda Martinez, Development Associate: Eifman’s Onegin is a highly entertaining performance filled with exciting visuals, heart pumping music and the perfect blend of modern and classic ballet… I highly recommend it!

Tickets are still available for tonight at 7:30pm, tomorrow at 8pm and Sunday at 2pm.
