Tolstoy’s sweeping tragic novel comes to life in this breathtaking adaptation by Boris Eifman.
Following their spectacular sold-out performances in 2013, Eifman Ballet returns to Toronto with the Canadian premiere of ANNA KARENINA. Eifman’s astonishing choreography re-tells the fate of the famous literary love triangle. Driven by passion, the alluring beauty restlessly chafes against her gilded aristocratic life while her turbulent, angst-filled relationships with both husband and lover are powerfully depicted through searing routines and athletic, highly charged performances. A scorching Anna is brought to life in Eifman’s innovative contemporary interpretation. “This production leaves one applauding the Eifman company for its passionate integrity, and Eifman himself for a gift for showmanship.”
