Powerful, passionate, raw and visceral, the internationally renowned Eifman Ballet is set to deliver its visually stunning production of Red Giselle to Toronto audiences. Inspired by one of the 20th century’s greatest ballerinas, Olga Spessivtseva, Boris Eifman’s choreographic love letter to Spessivtseva’s tragic life draws parallels to the classic ballet Giselle, but is also a springboard for larger themes of politics vs. art and public vs. private personas in the age of celebrity.
