Musical Theater of Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko presented undoubtedly the most long-awaited premiere of the season – the ballet “Anna Karenina” by Leo Tolstoy novel, directed by Christian Shpuka, artistic director of the Zurich ballet .
By the way, the ballet itself one of the most interesting contemporary choreographers created back in 2014, but the court put the Russian public only now. And he did not disappoint.
Shpuk not set himself the task literally retell the great work of Tolstoy. He basically did not want to only show the “love triangle”. His two-hour ballet – like inhaling and exhaling, in which, however, has gone in a whole epoch of Tsarist Russia and the personal tragedy of a woman

“In the case of” Anna Karenina “I was looking for Russian music and listened to a complete collection of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s works. I’m attracted to the simultaneous fascination and a peculiar heaviness in his music. It is felt that so often called” the Russian spirit. “However, I quickly noticed that the music of Rachmaninoff needs strong contrast contrast I found at Witold Lutoslawski … “-. Shpuk told about the musical accompaniment of the ballet. The score also included music Sulkhan Tsintsadze and Joseph Bardanashvili.
The basis of his statement Shpuk put some storylines of the novel: Anna Karenina and Vronsky, Dolly and Stiva, Kitty and Levin
On a stage full of minimalism – the focus is on the artists. That station platform, but in seconds he turned to the podium at the racetrack, a moment – and this is the coast of Italy, where Anna and Vronsky are enjoying each other’s company. But then Anna says about her son, and the pier becomes a table where a small Sergei plays the railway.
Another finding in the statement Shpuka – old newsreel footage, interspersed with dances and corps de ballet pas de deux Soloists
The dancers peasant shirtless, mowing meadows in the estate of Levin, and bicycle, where Kitty and Levin appear in front of guests on your wedding day … Noble and stingy on emotion Karenin. Loving Steve, constantly looming on the scene women in society, and poor Dolly, like a shadow that follows him. This brings to mind the truth of Tolstoy: All happy families resemble one another, each unhappy family is unhappy in its own
Austerity scenery complemented by precise epoch style costumes, the work of a permanent co-author Emma Shpuka Rayott. The costumes we feel and rainy Petersburg and see the magnificent ball. We know men, “three”, the officers uniforms, feminine dresses and skirts with a corsage of crinoline, rustling which blends harmoniously into the ballet music. The first appearance of Anna’s secular ball – black velvet dress with diamonds on her neck – the woman initially is unlike all ephemeral society ladies. Those are the details that make invisible to the viewer to feel the drama and tension of the situation of a separate moment.
Then she appears already in a scarlet satin dress at the reception at Princess Betsy – clothes as a symbol of the nascent passion. Gentle touch back Karenina Vronsky, a step, a deep plie, bold looks, and here they are alone on the empty stage – in a rush on the floor, without embarrassment
In the ballet Shpuka is not technically difficult jumps, which are so loved by the Russian audience. There is no end of the most intriguing – all perfectly familiar with the content of Tolstoy’s novel. Not found in “Anna Karenina” and the philosophy of the writer. However, he is unlikely to leave anyone indifferent. The European view of the Russian reality – it’s always fun
“This book is not only about marriage and morality, but above all on the relationship of the individual and society,” – he talked about choreographer novel. In his ballet, largely thanks to the excellent work of actor Stanislavsky Theatre Soloists, he was able to show a complete loneliness, did not wish to live like everyone else.
