The Brothers Karamazov ballet is a new choreographic interpretation of Dostoevskyas novel 'The Brothers Karamazov.' By having fundamentally re-thought and re-worked his own earlier world-renowned 1995 production The Karamazovs, also based on this timeless masterpiece of Russian literature, Boris Eifman created a psychodrama, rich in thought and emotion. In terms of both artistic expression and the technical solution, The Brothers Karamazov is a modern stage creation, which broaches age-old 'accursed' questions. In the context of the almost universal values crisis of the early XXI century, the choreographer turned to the non-negotiable, secure ethical foundations and staged a ballet that explored issues of theomachy and God-seeking, of faithlessness and faith, of the nature of sin and of spiritual salvation.
