Red Giselle by St. Petersburg’s Eifman Ballet to be performed in Minsk

The Palace of the Republic is to host the ballet, on March 26th, 2016. Red Giselle is justifiably the ‘calling card’ of the Eifman Ballet Theatre, portraying Russian prima ballerina Olga Spesivtseva’s genius and tragic fate. The director is known for his dramatic tension, expressiveness and visual inventiveness, as well as rich and symbolic choreography. The choreographer tells us, “Olga Spesivtseva was one of the greatest ballet dancers of the 20th century. I was astonished to learn the details of her life. She was a unique actress, kindly treated by fame and adored by fans and critics, but spent 20 years in a clinic for the insane, not far from New York, lonely and without independence. I felt such deep sorrow at this that I felt compelled to create the performance. The ballet isn’t a biography of Spesivtseva’s life, but an attempt to show the tragic destiny awaiting her on leaving Russia: a fate shared by many. In creating this performance we wanted to pay tribute to the memory of this great ballerina.”
