Description

Recorded Live from the Moscow Operetta Theatre.


"LAVISH... DYNAMIC... DARING... the peerless Anna (Valeria Lanskaya), magnificently captures the tragic vulnerability of Tolstoy's heroine, achieving a luminous intensity."
- The Moscow Times


Spectacular, breathtaking, emotional, and high-tech show based on a masterpiece by Leo Tolstoy. Anna Karenina is a classic literature masterpiece about the relationship between a man and a woman. The dramatic love story between a married lady Anna Karenina and a dashing military officer Alexey Vronsky takes place amidst the glitter and luxury of the Russian nobility in the second half of the 19th century.


The musical’s characters struggle with overwhelming and controversial feelings — love and betrayal, passion and duty, hope and desperation. Although almost a century and a half has passed since the time of the story, the events unfolding before the audience are gripping and touching in their timeless quality.
