Eifman St. Petersburg Ballet Presents Anna Karenina

Tolstoy’s sweeping tragic novel comes to life in this breathtaking adaptation by Boris Eifman.

Following their spectacular sold-out performances in 2013, Eifman Ballet returns to Toronto with the Canadian premiere of ANNA KARENINA. Eifman’s astonishing choreography re-tells the fate of the famous literary love triangle. Driven by passion, the alluring beauty restlessly chafes against her gilded aristocratic life while her turbulent, angst-filled relationships with both husband and lover are powerfully depicted through searing routines and athletic, highly charged performances. A scorching Anna is brought to life in Eifman’s innovative contemporary interpretation. “This production leaves one applauding the Eifman company for its passionate integrity, and Eifman himself for a gift for showmanship.”

Manasie Akpaliapik

Manasie Akpaliapik was born in 1955 in a hunting camp near Ikpiarjuk (Arctic Bay), Nunavut, on north Baffin Island. He spent his youth in Arctic Bay, relocated to Montreal, then settled in Toronto where he created all of these carvings. Now based in Ottawa and Montreal, Manasie is known for his animated and ambitious sculptures that sympathetically utilize the unique material and structure of bone, ivory and stone. Deeply connected to the culture and traditions of the Arctic, his works reflect a concern for the vulnerability of his homeland. They offer unflinching depictions of social ills that have impacted northern communities and reflect the belief that humans must live in balance with and respect all living things.

Organized by the Art Gallery of Ontario.

This exhibition is included with general admission.
