Theatre Highlight: Anna Karenina

Anna Karenina is a work of art that’s not short on achievements. Leo Tolstoy’s novel was described by William Faulkner as ‘the best ever written’ and has been translated and adapted for stage, film and everything else countless times. However, it has never been performed at Dramaten, which is something that is being remedied this September. Helen Edmunsson’s dramatisation of the novel pursues the stories of Karenina and Levin as contrasts, two different paths and visions of life, morality and love. Livia Millhagen, Per Svensson and Andreas Rothlin Svensson take the leading roles.
