Anna, a young aristocrat, is facing a lifetime of unhappiness in a marriage void of affection. She finds solace from her loneliness upon meeting Captain Vronsky, and embarks on a deeply passionate love affair. However, the pleasure of their infatuation is sharply curbed by the reality of her marriage vows, the risk of losing custody of her child, and the sting of society's condemnation. Musically, the songs explore their struggles, and those of the interconnected characters Levin, Kitty, Dolly and Oblonsky- interspersed by powerful and punchy chorus numbers.Music Maria Shepard.
