Anna is the gracious wife of Karenin, an ageing government official. She meets Count Vronsky through whom she rediscovers her passionate nature. Leaving her home and child to be with Vronsky, Anna defies society and convention. But as love dies away, suffering, and finally tragedy take its place.
A magnificent drama of vengeance, infidelity, and retribution, "Anna Karenina" is the moving story of people whose emotions conflict with the dominant social mores of their time. Tolstoy's masterful novel is one of the greatest works of world literature...it is a novel of social realism that perfectly bares the Russian soul, set against the fascinating panorama of life in nineteenth-century Russia. With a full-cast and stirring music, this compelling story of one woman's fate is brought to life in this powerful BBC production.
