Turgenev's novels are one of the most elegant and poetic pages of Russian literature. They talk about the most important moral values, make you think about the purpose and meaning of life, about responsibility for their actions and feelings. Turgenev admitted that in his youth he "survived and felt through the contents of the story "Torrents of Spring" personally."
The central line of the plot of the performance is the story of the origin, development and dramatic ending of the love of the main characters - a young man, the outstanding, but weak-willed, indecisive Dmitry Sanin and Gemma, a girl of deep and whole nature. The ballet creators focused their attention on revealing the psychological experiences of the characters, allowing the viewer to penetrate into the depths of human feelings, to relive them or to remember ... Like spring water, life sped past, leaving behind lost dreams and desires. And only memory again and again returns in the days of happy youth, gives minutes of oblivion and awe of the only love that was not destined to come true.
