TORONTO -
First premiered in 2005, ANNA KARENINA quickly became a signature work for choreographer Boris Eifman and his groundbreaking company.  This presentation marks only the second time the famed St. Petersburg Eifman Ballet has visited Toronto.  In 2013, three performances of Rodin sold-out immediately at the Sony Centre, leaving Toronto dance audiences wanting more!

Eifman’s ANNA KARENINA, based on the novel by Tolstoy, is a psychological drama which focuses on the famous literary love triangle of Anna/Karenin/Vronsky. A work of raw emotions; passion, rejection and self-destruction, ANNA KARENINA offers both classical romance and modern technique in an ongoing pas de trois that sets the heroine between husband and lover.

A scorching Anna is brought to life in Eifman’s innovative interpretation with searing routines and athletically-charged performances. “A ballet world in search of a major choreographer needs search no more,” proclaimed The New York Times.

When founding St. Petersburg Eifman Ballet in 1977, Eifman broke the rules and resisted the trends to develop his own personal form of expression that combines classical and contemporary dance and theatre. He has won all the highest awards in the arts in Russia, including the People's Artist of Russia, and has been honoured with France's Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. “This production leaves one applauding the Eifman company for its passionate integrity, and Eifman himself for a gift for showmanship,” stated The Daily Telegraph, London

On Friday April 24, beginning at 6:30pm in the lower lobby of the Sony Centre, ticket-holders only are invited to join University of Toronto professor Julia Zarankin for a pre-show discussion on what makes Anna Karenina one of the most powerful, romantic and tragic novels of all time.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
