Book Up & Down Tickets at the London Coliseum, London

One of the top ballet events of this year, Up & Down brings Francis Scott Fitzgerald's prose on stage - with unmissable charm

About Up & Down

Eifman Ballet returns to the London Coliseum this December with the UK premiere of Artistic Director Boris Eifman’s awe-inspiring ballet Up & Down featuring the invigorating music of George Gershwin, Franz Schubert and Alban Berg. This special visit will also be a celebration of the internationally renowned Company’s 40th anniversary.

Up & Down is a tragic and bright chronicle of a person’s spiritual death. The story about how a dream of happiness turns into a disaster, and an externally beautiful and carefree life flowing to the rhythms of jazz – into a nightmare.” Boris Eifman

“… there is no better story-telling choreographer around today.“  
Graham Watts, Dance Tabs (on Up & Down, St Petersburg, 2015)

Based on the 1934 F. Scott Fitzgerald novel ‘Tender Is the Night’, Up & Down follows the rise and fall of a promising young psychoanalyst and one of his patients; presenting the bizarre kaleidoscope of obsessions, fears and fragments of patients’ minds. The characters’ own ups and downs masterfully recreated by Boris Eifman and his dancers. Set in the Jazz Age – the piece evokes the unstoppable feast of life; the era of freedom, sensuality, and hedonism.
Eifman Ballet was established by Boris Eifman in 1977 and is one of the world’s largest non-classical ballet Companies. Distinguished by its technique, dedication and high onstage intelligence, the Company is renowned among ballet fans the world over for works such as Tchaikovsky, Anna Karenina, Eugene Onegin, Rodin, Requiem and Red Giselle.
Prior to its London run, Up & Down will be visiting St Petersburg, Monte Carlo and Israel.
