Anželika Cholina Dance Theater To Perform Anna Karenina in Trakai
 

Anželika Cholina Dance Theater To Perform Anna Karenina in Trakai

The story enchanting millions of readers around the world will be told in a language of dance in Trakai Castle.

The only time in 2016, the two-part play “Anna Karenina” of Anželika Cholina Dance Theater, created by the motives of a novel by Leo Tolstoy, will be shown in this historic place.

In the performance that is more than two hours long (with a break) music by Alfred Schnittke, Piotr Tchaikovsky, Gustav Mahler and Andrew Lloyd Webber is used. Works of composers of different generations and genres perfectly convey the emotional story of the performance.

L. Tolstoy does not moralize; he allows his themes to emerge naturally. Choreographer A. Cholina also does not moralize; there are no good or bad characters in her dance performance. There is no train on the stage, as the main though of the choreographer is that nowadays human can kill other human by his words, rejection and judgment.

L. Tolstoy’s “Anna Karenina” is one of the greatest novels ever written. It was written in 1878 and concerns the life of Russian aristocracy. But its main theme is love. And – hypocrisy, jealousy, faith, infidelity, family, marriage, society, progress, desire and passion – things that to some point are important for everyone.

The main character is Anna Karenina, a respectable Russian woman, who was forced to marry an older rich man. She does not hate her husband Alexei A. Karenin, but she doesn’t feel happiness either. One day while waiting for her brother Prince Stepan A. Oblonsky (“Stiva”) in the train station she meets a young count Alexei K. Vronsky. Anna falls in love and cannot, as well as does not want to hide it. For a noble married woman to have a lover in 19th century Russia was acceptable, but to fall in love publically was strictly forbidden. Anna breaks all rules and her life starts to change drastically.
