On Saturday in Barcelona completed a tour of Spain Saint-Petersburg state academic ballet theatre of Boris Eifman, which this year celebrates its 40th anniversary. The last day will be given two performances.

Despite the fact that the theater is in Spain quite often, in the last year and a half ago with the ballet «Rodin, eternal idol», these performances have become special — first time artists perform on one of the most famous European scenes in the Gran teatre del Liceu. The number of seats it occupies the second place in Europe among Opera theatres, second only to La Scala.

The first performance of the theatre who saw the inhabitants of Barcelona, became his «calling card» — the ballet «Anna Karenina», staged in 2005, and during that time have visited many countries — from USA to China, from great Britain to Australia.

In the Liceu, located on the famous Rambla that once were Anna Pavlova and Vaslav Nijinsky.

Ballet performances are accompanied by Symphony orchestra of the Gran teatre del Liceu. Behind the Board — a well-known Dutch conductor Conrad van Alphen. «If suddenly the audience something not like on stage, you can close your eyes and listen to the beautiful music of Tchaikovsky,» laughs Oleg Gabyshev.

Maria admitted that the reception in Barcelona has become one of the most vivid impressions. «This is the most gorgeous reception. Unexpected. When I danced the first performance here was silence until the curtain fell. But when he entered the house, clapping like I’m a rock star or playing in the club «Barcelona», says Abasov.

Gabyshev plays the role of Vronsky for ten years, but stressed that «not boring». «Every time I find something new, some details, and for artists, it’s nice and the viewers. Even dancing in «Anna Karenina» in the chorus he says «I felt one of the main characters».

«Corps de ballet scenes have not only a link but also carry important semantic nature — society gossip, which eventually transformed into a train, which kills the main character,» he says.

«Anna Karenina» — one of the classic ballets of the theater always taken well. «This is the famous story known to the General public not only novel, but also in Hollywood movies,» explains Gabyshev. Soloist notes that Eifman in his statement managed to cut unnecessary details and concentrate all on Anna, Karenin and Vronsky.
