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.
