The story of the young and beautiful Anna Karenina, who longs for great affection that she cannot experience with her much older husband, is a timeless tale of forbidden love. Leo Tolstoy’s literary bestseller has been adapted for the screen numerous times. Now, the psychological novel is being undertaken by the art of ballet, which through movement can often express more than words.
