When the Vakhtangov Theater premiered its version of Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina" as a contemporary dance production, viewers and critics were skeptical. But their skepticism lasted just a few minutes. The unorthodox production in Moscow was a hit.

It is directed by Lithuanian choreographer, Anzelika Cholina, with music by Alfred Schnittke.

Don't miss this very special production, made available by the Stage Russia project, which has been producing beautifully filmed and subtitled versions of Russia's best theatrical productions for several years.
