Russia’s most innovative dance company returns to the Auditorium Theatre following the triumph of 2017’s Red Giselle, named one of the best dance performances of the year by the Chicago Tribune. The company gives the North American premiere to Boris Eifman’s The Pygmalion Effect, a new re-envisioning of the classic Greek myth. Set to music by Johann Strauss, Eifman’s ballet follows a passionate ballroom dancer who crafts a young woman into a brilliant dancer. Eifman — known for his “Russian psychological ballet theatre” and choreography that is “big on tumultuous narrative and passionately seething characters” (Los Angeles Times) — and his dancers have been called “among the most fascinating artists before the public today” (San Francisco Chronicle).
