Eifman Ballet Theatre St Petersburg. 31 Jan 2004. In Red Giselle, choreography by Boris Eifman. The first act of this Giselle, which is a tribute to the great ballerina Olga Spesivceva, is set in St Petersburg, where Eifmans company is based. It depicts the academic world of the Marinsky Theatre at the beginning of the 20th century, and at the same time tells the story of the 1917 revolution and the subsequent fleeing of intellectuals. The second act moves to the decadent Paris of the 1920s, where Spesivceva danced with Diaghilevs company before losing her mind and taking an early retirement from the stage.
