Anna Karenina

Anna Karenina

An adaptation of Tolstoy's novel


Anna, facing a lifetime of unhappiness in a marriage void of affection meets a dashing military officer, Alexey Vronsky. Her story is paralleled by that of strong-minded Levin and charming Kitty, frivolous Stiva and loyal Dolly and their worlds are all falling apart.

“there are as many different kinds of love as there are different hearts” says Leo Tolstoy in his timeless novel.

There are as many adaptations of Anna Karenina, as there are different kinds of actors and directors. London based Russian company Xameleon Theatre is back with the true theatrical roller coaster. Each of 4 actresses performing in the play are playing not only Anna Karenina, but also all other characters of the novel, including male characters. This adaptation of Anna Karenina is not a period drama, neither it is a tale of the distant past. It is a story about society, faith and love, told in a contemporary way.

Performed in Russian with English surtitles
Age Recommendation: 12+
