Eifman is the most amazing choreographer -- he has created a language all his own. The lifts are so ingenious and they get into them without any seeming effort. Just flows. If you like ballet, go. The dancers are beautiful. If you like theatre,...continued

The ballet story was very depressing, somewhat hard to follow. The dancers were amazing. Not sure if I would recomend this to my friends.

Great Production! Artistic director is a genius. Great combination of Tchaikovsky and rock guitar. Choreographic depiction of the human soul is very unique and breathtaking.

Not the kind of ballet I was expecting but I should've done more research on the type of dance this troupe would be performing. I felt that the classical music and the modern dancing just didn't match. I've seen it work before, just not this...continued

I love dance, art, theater... you name it. I was not worried whether or not I would be impressed by the Russians. My boyfriend had never been to a ballet, but he loves art and performance art, so I bought tickets and invited him to accompany me....continued

This was a great experience! I had never been to a ballet before and the OC Performing Arts Center was a beautiful venue. The ballet itself was very entertaining, and a definitely modern take on the classic ballet "Eugene Onegin". Not for people...continued
