Boris Eifman’s ballet «Anna Karenina», based on the novel by L. N. Tolstoy, was premiered in 2005. An instant success, it charmed the audience with its psychological energy and fresh take on the classic story. The ballet is centered on the love triangle of Anna/Karenin/Vronsky. In this performance the focus is on the love triangle of Anna/Karenin/Vronsky. In Eifman’s opinion, it was passion that pushed Anna to the path of self-destruction and eventually led to her demise.
