Love is all-consuming for the beautiful but married Anna, who finds herself caught in a life-changing affair with the dashing Count Vronsky.

Set in the late 19th century of Imperial Russia, Possokhov’s immersive adaptation-winner of the 2019 “Oscar’s of Dance” Benois de la Danse International Prize for Best Choreography-returns to the Joffrey for the first time since its successful world premiere in 2019. This blockbuster ballet, based on the novel by Leo Tolstoy, features an original composition by award-winning composer Ilya Demutsky, costumes and sets by Emmy-Award-winning designer Tom Pye, and lighting by famed designer David Finn.

Choreographed by; Yuri Possokhov. Composed by Ilya Demutsky.
