Stage Russia: Anna Karenina Musical

A spectacular, breathtaking, emotional, high-tech production based on the masterpiece by Leo Tolstoy.

The musical’s characters struggle with overwhelming feelings of love and betrayal, passion and duty, hope and desperation. Although almost a century and a half has passed since the time of the story, the events unfolding before the audience are gripping and touching in their timeless quality.
