Eifman Ballet

Tue.-Wed.: The torrid love affair between French sculptor Auguste Rodin and his muse, Camille Claudel, serves as the inspiration for a ballet by St. Petersburg's Boris Eifman coming to Northrop. The Eifman Ballet's "Rodin" tells the story of the 15-year affair between Rodin and Claudel, the latter a sculptor in her own right who suffered a mental breakdown after the demise of their relationship and who was confined to an insane asylum. Drawing on the shapes and expressive emotion found in Rodin's works, Eifman employs his method of "psychological ballet" and plastique as the sculptures come to life. (7:30 p.m. Tue.-Wed.; Northrop, 84 SE. Church St., Mpls.; $49-$74, 612-625-6600 or northrop.umn.edu.)
