Returning to the ENO London Coliseum for the UK Premiere of Artistic Director Boris Eifman’s new work, Eifman Ballet of St Petersburg presents Up & Down, a dynamic reinterpretation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s celebrated final novel Tender is the Night.

Set in the magnificent Jazz Age to the invigorating music of George Gershwin, Franz Schubert and Alban Berg, the piece evokes the unstoppable feast of life; the era of freedom, sensuality and hedonism.

Up & Down follows the rise and fall of a promising young psychoanalyst and one of his patients; presenting the bizarre kaleidoscope of obsessions, fears and fragments of patients’ minds. The characters’ own ups and downs are masterfully recreated by Boris Eifman and his dancers as this new choreography allows us to experience this beautiful and tragic story in a new, innovative and multi-dimensional way.
