Rodin (Ballet by Boris Eifman) - Bolshoi Theatre

Ballet by Boris Eifman
Music: M.Ravel, C. Saint-Saens, J. Massenet
Scenery: Zinoviy Margolin
Costumes: Olga Shaishmelashvili
Light: Gleb Filshtinsky, Boris Eifman
World premiere took place in Saint Petersburg on the 22nd of November 2011

Boris Eifman"s new ballet, Rodin, is dedicated to the life and creative work of the great sculptor Auguste Rodin and his apprentice, lover and muse, Camille Claudel.
The story of their passionate relationship is full of drama. For 15 years Rodin and Claudel had been one sensual and creative body. But their breakup dealt a deathblow to Camille"s mental health and marked the beginning of her destruction. Almost forgotten, isolated from the outside world, vegetating in misery, Claudel went out of her mind. She was convinced of a deliberate conspiracy against her, with Rodin the main perpetrator. She spent 30 years in a mental asylum, where she died in 1943, forgotten and left by everyone.
Rodin is a massive artistic utterance about the tragic nature of the lives of geniuses. With the help of the unique body language of the modern psychological ballet, which the choreographer honed in previous works (Onegin, The Seagull, Anna Karenina, Russian Hamlet, and others), Eifman presents a new conception of the world of human passions studied masterfully by Rodin and Claudel in their works, and also creates a masterpiece dedicated to the incomprehensible mystery of the creative process.

LIBRETTO

Act one
For all the multitude of differences which divide them, Dmitri, Ivan and Alyosha are linked to each other by invisible threads: for the "stinking, sinful" blood of their father, Fyodor Pavlovich Karamazov, runs in their veins.
The monk Alyosha tries in vain to soften the impact of passions which have got out of hand. He is an observer of the bitter rivalry between his father and brother Dmitri for the favors of Grushenka, of his father s constant drunken orgies, of the desperate veering backwards and forwards of Katerina Ivanovna s emotions who is unable to decide whether it is Dmitri or Ivan she loves. But not only is Alyosha incapable of helping his nearest and dearest, he too discovers within himself to an increasing degree the despicable traits of "Karamazovship".
Ivan, who is full of compassion for "the insulted and the injured", hates his father and Dmitri, his brother. The whole family is drawn into the battle for Grushenka between Fyodor Pavlovich and Dmitri Karamasov. Fyodor Pavlovich is killed... and Dmitri is accused of his father s murder.

Act two
Dmitri is in prison. He is innocent of the crime of which he is accused and the loss of Grushenka is a very heavy blow for him.
Ivan and Alyosha argue endlessly about the meaning of existence and about man s soul. Their argument assumes material form in the figures of the Great Inquisitor and of Christ, who has come back to the sinful world, in the legend composed by Ivan. The Inquisitor-Ivan asserts that only tyrany can give people "weak creatures such as they have been created, peaceful, humble happiness". But Christ-Alyosha wishes to free people of their fear and to provide them with "a free heart so that they may determine what is good and what is evil"
A gesture from The Inquisitor - and an obedient crowd is again ready to crucify Christ. "Why have you come here to hinder us?.. Be off and never come back, never!"
Ivan is lacerated by pangs of conscience: he accuses himself of having harbored a wish to kill his father. Reality and fantasy become confused in his mind and he sees the ghost of Fyodor Pavlovich...
Ivan comes to visit Dmitri who is languishing in jail in order to confess to him his sinful desires. Despite the prison bars, the brothers are reconciled and they now love each other.
Alyosha is unable to watch human suffering and, driven by love for his fellow men, he frees the convicts incarcerated in "The House of the Dead". Their heads reeling from the belief that "everything is permitted" to them, the convicts destroy everything on their path.
The family come to a dreadful end: Fyodor Pavlovich is murdered, Dmitri is in jail, Ivan goes off his head, Alyosha is made responsible for the fate of numerous innocent victims...But, however far sinful man may fall, he may be saved if he repents for his sins.

Synopsis

Act 1
A psychiatric clinic. A bizarre kaleidoscope of obsessions, fears, and fragments of patients' minds. A young Psychiatrist is in the center of this phantasmagoric world. Striving to help the miserable, he plunges into the innermost secrets of their fractured souls.
Young female Patient, a new inmate of the clinic, brought there by her millionaire father. The perceptive Psychiatrist manages to earn the confidence of the patient. The established spiritual connection develops into affection. But what is the root cause of the nightmares that torture the girl?
Psychiatrist finds Patients's Father. Under doctor's pressure he confesses to the sin of incest.
Psychiatrist's care helps Patient break free from the burden of the past. Psychiatrist suffers the pangs of conscience: doctor's commandments deny any possibility of intimacy with patients.
Patients's Father - the ominous personification of the power of money - would not mind buying a personal doctor for his daughter. Such fate is unacceptable for Psychiatrist. He has to part with his patient.
Bouts of madness remind of the fragility of the Patient's regained sanity. Her mind, split by the mental illness, generates a sinister twin that haunts the girl. And yet now, she has never been closer to recovery. Psychiatrist's love is a salvation for her. Inhabitants of the clinic celebrate Psychiatrist and Patient's wedding.

Act 2
The just married couple's family life goes within the clinic walls. The insidious disease, ready to return at any moment, saddens their marital happiness. Patient does not want to share Psychiatrist with other inmates, so she makes him leave the clinic.
The couple's everyday existence is turned into a carnival. However, the never ending feast does not save Psychiatrist from the aching longing for his old life filled with the doctor's noble work. The flow of luxury that hit Psychiatrist after his marriage to the possessor of millions consumes him rapidly. The corruption of the soul cannot be stopped.
Psychiatrist meets Movie Star. The romance between them does not bring him the harmony he wishes for.
Patient's illness finally recedes, revealing the cold and power-hungry nature of her blood. Psychiatrist's marriage falls into pieces. Patient gets closer with Buddy, who has been long in love with her.
Psychiatrist is broken and crushed. Desperate drunken escapades are the ultimate gesture of helplessness. His medical talent is ruined, his will to live has drained, and the mind is clouded with the haze of impending madness. Psychiatrist returns to the clinic that he has left once. From now on he is its new patient.
