The weather was warm. I wore black & white pencil skirt with a scrunched pleat short jack & high heels. Some wore full length dresses - men in sports coats. Ballet is meant for elegant dressing - NOT shorts, jeans or flipflops .

This was an amazing ballet.....great story, great dancing, great costumes...Boris Eifman is brilliant, and I can't wait to see more of his ballets. The Tier 3 tickets were great for my young daughter since she had enough room around us to dance...continued

The Eifman Ballet is always worth the wait. The imaginative choreography of Eifman's contemporary productions and the exceptional talent of the performers is a must see.

For its sixth visit to Segerstrom Center for the Arts, the Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg will give the Southern California premiere of the company’s riveting Don Quixote. Artistic Director and Choreographer Boris Eifman has added new twists and inventive takes to Don Quixote, which is based on an episode from Cervantes’ novel Don Quixote de la Mancha. Using classical ballet infused with the spirit of contemporary choreography, Eifman creates compellingly original dance dramas. The Los Angeles Times calls his creations “dynamic, theatrical, visionary works that delve into characters’ lives in the most exciting, probing, titillating, and wondrous ways.”
