Anna Karenina

April 4 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$46 – $125

The Australian Ballet are welcoming you back to the theatre with the exquisite and tragic Anna Karenina.

Cinematic staging, elegant costumes and Yuri Possokhov’s sensual choreography illuminate the tragedy of Anna Karenina, whose desire brings about her ruin. When Anna meets Vronsky, a handsome young officer, the instant connection between them flames into an affair – with disastrous consequences. Anna leaves her conservative husband and relinquishes her son to be with her lover, but her bliss is fleeting, and when Vronsky’s passion cools she takes desperate action.

Possokhov, formerly a principal dancer with Bolshoi Ballet and San Francisco Ballet and now a major international choreographer, does full justice to Tolstoy’s novel, distilling its central romances and conflicts into a fast-moving, immersive narrative.

Anna Karenina shows the power of storytelling through the beauty of dance.”
David Hallberg, Artistic Director of The Australian Ballet

After standing ovations and critical acclaim in its debut season, the final dress rehearsal for Anna Karenina will be on Monday 4 April, 7pm at Sydney Opera House.
