From 26 October, Operaen: The Norwegian National Ballet dances Leo Tolstoj's engaging and bitter love story

Anna Karenina has been called the greatest work of literature ever written. The Norwegian National Ballet is once again dancing Leo Tolstoy’s engaging and bitter love story.

Anna Karenina meets Vronskij during a train ride between Moscow and St. Petersburg. Before long, she can no longer imagine returning to her husband and family life but must make a fateful choice between family – and her son – and an all-consuming love. This takes place among the rustling of dresses and gossiping at parties in the upper class of which she is a part.

Zurich Ballet and the Norwegian National Ballet have joined forces to produce Anna Karenina, which the magazine Dance Europe proclaimed to be the best ballet premiere in 2014. After premiering in Zurich and performing in Oslo in 2016, the ballet has been danced around the world.

Christian Spuck has chosen to set the ballet to music by Russian composer Sergej Rakhmaninov and Polish composer Witold Lutosławski. The music is performed by the piano soloist Håvard Gimse and the Norwegian Opera Orchestra and Ingebjørg Kosmo sings an interpretation of several of Rachmaninoff's Russian folk songs.
