Boris Eifman’s ballet Rodin tells about the life and work of two great sculptors: Auguste Rodin and his disciple, mistress and Muse–Camille Claudel.

The story of their love is truly a tragic one. For over 15 years Rodin and Claudel were one integral whole, both sensuously and creatively. The breakup of the lovers that ensued eventually was a fatal blow to the mental health of Camille leading to her tragic end. Half-forgotten, hardened, hopelessly impecunious, Camille goes mad. A paranoiac idea of a conspiracy against her being lead and inspired by Rodin himself incessantly torments the already weakened mind of the wretched woman. When she died, she was completely forgotten by all and everybody.

Eifman’s Rodin is a comprehensively creative study of such a subject as how tragic genius’ lives may be. By resorting to the uniquely plastique of the modern psychological ballet, which was so brilliantly mastered by the choreographer in his other productions (Onegin, The Seagull, Anna Karenina, Russian Hamlet, etc.), Boris Eifman not only offers a new interpretation to the world of human passions studied masterfully by Rodin and Claudel, but creates a picture of the insoluble mystery of the creative process.

Premiere: November 22, 2011

The story of life and love of Auguste Rodin and Camille Claudel is an amazing tale about an incredibly dramatic alliance of two artists where everything is entwined: passion, hatred and artistic jealousy. Spiritual and energy exchange between the two sculptors is an outstanding phenomenon: Being so close to Rodin, Camille is not only an inspiration for his work helping him find a new style and create masterpieces, she also impetuously goes through the development of her own talent becoming a great master of sculpture herself. Her beauty, her youth and her genius—all this is sacrificed to her beloved man.

After breaking up with Claudel the artist stays with devoted but unloved Rose Beuret. Camille tries to find her escape in work, but art critics do not accept her sculptures. In despair, Claudel destroys most of her works and plunges into the darkness of insanity. The wretched woman’s soul is being incinerated by pathological hatred towards her former teacher and lover, who, as Camille believes, has stolen her life and talent.

This new ballet reflects Rodin’s longing for his Muse, torments of his conscience, as well as Camille's delirium caused by the mental illness and saturated with painful obsessions—or rather that of the insane Erinys that the ruthless fate has turned her into.
