Premiered on 11 May 2001


Boris Eifman is bewitched by a riddle of creation and magic of the genius that is expressed in its interpretations of life of Tchaikovsky, Moliere and the well-known ballerina Olga Spessivtseva. Plunging into the most dark, latent and terrible corners of human mentality, Eifman creates a classical example of psychoanalysis on a scene. He tries to show extreme, extreme conditions of human life on a scene, seeing in madness of the heroes unique possibility to reach other worlds and measurements, the worlds of imaginations and images. Moving apart borders of own imagination through imagination of the heroes, the choreographer plunges into the depth of the actual philosophical and spiritual questions which have become by a basis of performance «Don Juan, or Moliere Passions».
