Anna is beautiful, admired and married to a powerful man but her life feels empty – until a chance meeting with the dashing Count Vronsky throws her into emotional turmoil and a scandalous affair. Contrasting with this tale of destructive love is the story of Levin, an idealistic man striving to find meaning in his own life.
Helen Edmundson’s celebrated and ‘exemplary adaptation’ (London Times) of Leo Tolstoy’s enduring classic is a contemporary morality play about the extreme consequences of love. This is the first of two productions to be produced, designed and performed by our 2016 Bachelor of Performance Graduating Company.
