Anna Karenina DVD
Maya Plisetskaya realized a dream when, unable to find a choreographer to take on the challenge, she adapted Tolstoy's novel to the stage in her own choreographic debut. Dancing in the title role, Plisetskaya's very theatrical interpretation is complemented by Rodion Shchedrin's music and the direction of Margarita Pilikhina. Supporting roles are played by Alexander Godunov, Vladimir Tikhonov (both from the original production), as well as other artists from the Bolshoi Ballet. 80 min.
