“Everything is finished. I have nothing but you… remember that”

Anna is beautiful and admired but empty, until a chance meeting throws her into emotional turmoil and a scandalous affair.

Contrasting with this tale of destructive love is the story of Levin, an idealistic man striving to find meaning in life.

Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina is one of the greatest novels of all time and in Helen Edmundson’s celebrated adaptation it becomes a deeply moving meditation on the nature of love. This vibrant and highly physical new production brings a fresh take on this timeless story.
