When to see it

Background

Alexei Ratmansky’s acclaimed staging of Tolstoy’s epic novel Anna Karenina returns after its stunning success six years ago at the Royal Opera House. Tolstoy’s magnificent portrayal of an extraordinary and tormented woman who breaks all moral and social conventions with devastating consequences is set to a powerful score by Rodion Shchedrin. The ballet’s extraordinary heroine is the perfect vehicle for the unparalleled dramatic and expressive gifts of the Mariinsky’s great dancers.
