Description
Maya Plisetskaya choreographed and stars in this gripping, visceral adaptation of the Tolstoy classic. A live 1980 performance by the Bolshoi Ballet, it features Mikhail Petukhov as Vronsky, Victor Barykin as Karenin, and Nina Sorokina as Kitty. The Orchestra of the Bolshoi Theatre is conducted by Yuri Simonov.

"Plisetskaya must find a sister spirit in Anna Karenina. Like Tolstoy's heroine who sacrifices husband, son and a sheltered life to run away with her adored Vronsky, the great Bolshoi ballerina is a rebel, an individual who has, in the past, pitted herself against an unsympathetic, monolithic society. But unlike Anna, who finally escapes through suicide, Plisetskaya has stuck around and triumphed…. Her 1972 version of Tolstoy's masterpiece … is a project of breathtaking scope for someone who said recently that she does not consider herself a professional choreographer.... 'Anna Karenina' proved visually, kinetically, and musically powerful, a true collaboration of the theater arts."—Boston Globe
