»My efforts and aspirations are the theatre, open to emotional experience. I make my world by means of creating the secrets, in which the characters live and work according to my rules. I love my cardiogram and rhythm of my heartbeat, with all its outbreaks, shocks, rises and downfalls,« wrote Boris Eifman, the most prestigious Russian choreographer. His ballet The Brothers Karamazov was premiered in 1995 with a tremendous success. Eifman also claims that it is his best creation ever.
