The story based on "Tender Is the Night" by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg premieres the Up and Down ballet on the stage of Alexandrinsky Theatre. Up & Down is a full-length ballet that delves into Sigmund Freud’s view of the unconscious mind through a love story set in the dazzling, decadent 1920s. The heroes: a young woman struggling to overcome mental illness, and a self-destructive man who winds up betraying his soul and his talent.
Set to the sumptuous music of Alban Berg, Franz Schubert, and George Gershwin, Up and Down is the culmination of Eifman’s “ballets on psychiatric themes” cycle, and cements his reputation as “virtually the only [narrative ballet choreographer] totally in touch with the 21st century”
