Eifman Ballet performs Boris Eifman’s Anna Karenina (3 – 4 April 2012) and Onegin (6-7 April 2012) in London. For more information and booking, visit The London Coliseum website.

We started The Ballet Bag in April 2009 with the mission to prove that ballet is not stuffy, old fashioned and inaccessible; that it is quite the opposite: relevant, fresh and topical. With the aim to Give Ballet a New Spin we try to show it under a different light. When writing our capsule biographies, ballet fact cards, review roundups and commentary on social media, we cross it over with other art forms and cultural references (pop culture, cinema, rock music – ie. other things we love!).
