For 40 years, across a shifting political climate for artists in his native Russia, the defiantly controversial choreographer Boris Eifman has created “works that hinge on extreme theatricality, acrobatic pas de deux, and spectacular effects” (The New Yorker) for his Saint Petersburg company. In The Pygmalion Effect, the company dances a brand-new ballet inspired by George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, set to a score by Johann Strauss Jr.
