On May 16, I hosted visionary choreographer Boris Eifman at an elegant pre-performance reception at Russian Pointe Dance Boutique, before the evening's performance of "Onegin" by Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg. Mr. Eifman spoke briefly about his artistic vision and the importance of contemporary dance, while I translated for non-Russian-speaking guests. Those who attended enjoyed beverages and hors d'oeuvres from La Mirage restaurant, and trolley-bus transportation to Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University for the 8 pm performance.
