The Mariinsky Ballet’s acclaimed staging of Tolstoy’s epic novel Anna Karenina receives its British premiere.

Choreographed by Alexei Ratmansky to Rodion Shchedrin’s powerful score, the ballet’s extraordinary heroine breaks all moral and social conventions with devastating consequences.

Tolstoy’s magnificent portrayal of a tormented woman, brought to ruin by the abandonment of her passionless marriage for the dashing Count Vronsky, gives an opportunity for two great ballerinas, Diana Vishneva and Uliana Lopatkina, to display their ramatic and expressive gifts.
