Arts Emerson: Anna Karenina
Directed and choreographed by Angelica Cholina, this internationally award winning Vakhtangov Theatre production of Anna Karenina is a choreographed interpretation of Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel.
Cholina strives to find the equivalent of Tolstoy’s words in harmony and movement, with every gesture holding meaning. The music of Alfred Schnittke helps to reveal the characters and their depth, together with elegance and mood corresponding to the amplitude of the novel.
A crowd favorite in Moscow which plays to sold-out houses month after month, this meticulously detailed and gorgeous Anna Karenina is an example of the new Russian theatre scene, fearlessly focusing on the visceral, allowing audience members to form their own interpretations.
Winner of the “Villanueva Award”, Best Foreign Performance, International Havana Theatre Festival; Winner “Crystal Turandot”, Best Debut Performance, Olga Lerman.
