Direct from its world-premiere in Chicago, the Joffrey brings us this two-act ballet created by visionary choreographer Yuri Possokhov (Bolshoi Ballet, San Francisco Ballet) and an all-star creative team including composer Ilya Demutsky (2016 Golden Mask Award recipient, Russia’s most prestigious theatre honor). Anna Karenina, a married noblewoman and socialite, becomes embroiled in a scandalous affair with the dashing cavalry officer, Count Vronsky, in Tolstoy’s tragic drama of passion and revenge set against a backdrop of 19th-century Imperial Russia. Choreographer Possokhov has received critical acclaim for transforming iconic literature into inventive, emotionally driven story ballets—a perfect choice for “the greatest book ever written.” (Time Magazine readers’ poll)
