17 March 2010. In Anna Karenina, choreography by Boris Eifman. The work sketches the narrative of the Russian heroine, torn between domestic duty to husband and son and uncontrollable passion for a dashing officer. Eifman translates emotion into motion, moving his dancers boldly and, like Martha Graham, has the theatrical instinct to know when the soul-searching duets and trios need a change of pace. Scenes of Anna, her husband Karenin and her lover Vronsky, who wrestle their emotions and each other, alternate with elegant, rowdy, or gaudy ensemble sections such as the opening party where Anna meets Vronsky amidst a swirling sea of waltzing couples.
