Cinematic staging, elegant costumes and Yuri Possokhov’s powerful choreography illuminate the tragedy of Anna Karenina, whose desire brings about her ruin.

Leo Tolstoy’s immortal novel comes to life in this epic ballet of cinematic proportions. Heartbreak, tragedy, love, lust and betrayal are all at the centre of Anna Karenina’s undoing. The agonies and ecstasies of Anna’s turbulent life are powerfully evoked in this masterful ballet.

Yuri Possokhov’s Anna Karenina is faithful to Tolstoy’s novel, features Fin Ross’ projections and Tom Pye’s set and costume designs. 

Anna Karenina is part of David Hallberg’s first season as Artistic Director of The Australian Ballet.

“There are as many kinds of love as there are hearts...” Leo Tolstoy
