Don Juan and Moliere meet on the stage of Mariinsky theater.

C: .jpg According to Eyfman, there is a tragic contrast of Jean-Baptist Moliere's personal drama and rich life of his character Don Juan in this ballet.

Such combination of private and creative lives has given Eyfman an opportunity to see new potentials for the genre of psychological drama.

Not only famous soloists of Boris Eyfman's theater of ballet, but young talents Alexy Turko, Natalia Porovoznuk and Nina Zmievets will take part in this ballet. The world open-night of the ballet came about in New-York's "CityCenter" this May.
