“Man is a mystery. It needs to be unravelled, and if you spend your whole life unravelling it, don't say that you've wasted time. I am studying that mystery because I want to be a human being.” These words of Fyodor Dostoevsky perfectly match the task of describing the life of Boris Eifman who in each of his works intently and earnestly studies the most complicated aspects of life and spirit.

The Beyond Sin ballet is a new choreographic interpretation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s novel The Brothers Karamazov. By having fundamentally rethought and reworked his own earlier world renowned production The Karamazovs of 1995, also based on this masterpiece of Russian literature, Boris Eifman has created an emotionally rich and philosophical dramatic ballet.

“Expanding the potential of body language as a way of exploring the inner world of man, we offer our vision of the key ideas of the novel. Beyond Sin both carries on and develops the tradition of psychological ballet art and strives to accomplish another equally complicated task – to create a choreographic art equivalent to the subject so masterfully investigated by Dostoevsky – that of the racking burden of destructive passions and of bad heredity,” said Boris Eifman.

Boris Eifman is one of the few, if not the only Russian choreographers who has maintained an energetic and brilliant artistic life for several decades. He has created more than forty ballet performances, for which he was named the People’s Artist of Russia, a State Prize of the Russian Federation Laureat, and awarded the Golden Mask and the Golden Soffit. He is also the holder of the Order of Merit for the Fatherland, and various international prizes and titles.

The Saint Petersburg Eifman Ballet, established by Boris Eifman in 1977, was from day one recognized for its new and innovative conception of what ballet should be. The company is renowned among ballet lovers around the world for such ballets as I, Don Quixote; Red Giselle, Russian Hamlet, Anna Karenina, The Seagull, Eugene Onegin, Rodin, Beyond Sin, Requiem and Tchaikovsky.
