Based on Leo Tolstoy’s famous novel and choreographed by Maya Plisetskaya to music by Rodion Shchedrin, this film is a vehicle for the extraordinary talents of Mme. Plisetskaya. Co-starring the spectacular Alexander Godunov as Vronsky, Anna Karenina is a completely cinematic rendering of this acclaimed production, which has never before been seen in the United States. Dealing primarily with the psychological elements of the character of Anna, the ballet is genuinely remarkable work, beautiful and penetrating.
