About performance

"Escape from everyday life, emotinal stres and power of uncontrollable feelings it´s what makes Anna Karenina a timeless masterpiece and is in sync with esence of rock music" says author of libretto Pavla Forest who portrays Anna Karenina.

Story is set in bikers club which represents state, hierarchy and order. It´s the place when we learn about Anna Karenina and her tragic fate. We witness events that change lives of everbody involved. What is love´s and family´s role in human life? Does individual´s passion and happiness come always first? How does perfect relationship look? Director Roman Štolpa says: "Issues presented in this piece are still actual. We still struggle with relationships, life crisis, dissatisfaction with our lives. We still try to change to find happiness, moral values or place in society. Opera give space to think about our problem and in its own way can offer a solution."

Production is accompanied by acrobats and fire show performed by Pyroterra.
