Directed by Lithuanian choreographer, Anzelica Cholina, this multiple award-winning Vakhtangov Theatre production of Anna Karenina is a modern dance interpretation of Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel.
Cholina succeeds in finding the equivalent of Tolstoy’s words in harmony and movement, with every gesture holding meaning. The distinctive music of Alfred Schnittke helps to reveal the inner turmoil of the characters and their depth.
