Eifman Ballet returns to the London Coliseum this December with the UK premiere of Artistic Director Boris Eifman’s awe-inspiring ballet Up & Down, featuring the invigorating music of George Gershwin, Franz Schubert and Alban Berg.

Celebrating the internationally renowned company’s 40th anniversary, the show is based on the 1934 F. Scott Fitzgerald novel ‘Tender Is the Night’, and follows the rise and fall of a promising young psychoanalyst and one of his patients.

Presenting the bizarre kaleidoscope of obsessions, fears and fragments of patients’ minds, the characters’ own ups and downs are masterfully recreated by Boris Eifman and his dancers. Set in the Jazz Age, the piece evokes the unstoppable feast of life; the era of freedom, sensuality, and hedonism.

One of the world’s largest non-classical ballet Companies, Eifman Ballet is renowned among ballet fans the world over.
