Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg,
Up and Down


Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg returns to Segerstrom Center for the Arts with the West Coast premiere of Up and Down, a turbulent love story of a young woman struggling to overcome mental illness and a self-destructive man who winds up betraying his soul and talent in the dazzling, decadent 1920s.

An intense, psychological drama set to the music of Berg, Schubert and Gershwin, this full-length narrative ballet is the culmination of Eifman’s ballets on psychiatric themes.

Running time (approximate): 1 hour and 55 minutes
