Why See National Ballet of Canada - Anna Karenina?
North American Premiere
National Ballet of Canada opens a golden tome of Russian Literature for this North American Premiere of John Neumeier's fixating imagining of Tolstoy's tale of love, passion, honor, and emotion. Bringing the setting into the modern day and using a score that fuses Tchaikovsky with Alfred Schnittke and Cat Stevens, he has created a thoroughly moving and wonderfully poignant adaptation that has had critics and audiences alike riveted all throughout Europe.
Every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way - The story of Anna Karenina
Telling the tale of the spirited Countess Anna and her salacious affair with the handsome Count Vronksy, it encompasses many themes, including morality and societal pressure as their passion burns brightly before igniting into an explosive and unforgettable finale. Much like Tolstoy's sprawling masterpiece War and Peace, Anna Karenina is a finely wrought saga that transports the reader (or the viewer) into a bustling saga that captures every human emotion with biting drama and pursed wit over monumental landscape; making it perfect fodder for the medium of ballet.

Come From Away
From the beginning of the pounding percussion line, the energy in the theatre was palpable. I've never felt anything like it!
