About the performance
A tour through the dreams of Anna Karenina, crashes with Dostoevsky, Tchaikovsky and Michael Bulgakov. What Leo Tolstoy did not write but Anna dreamed. In 2014 Jasmin and Oleg visited an especial musical town in the north of Russia close to the Finnish border. They figured out that playing music and Russian classical literature has a very strong influence on the life of Kandalakshian people. This inspired Oleg and Jasmin to create a musical related to the rich cultural heritage of Kandalakscha. In “Dreams and tears of Anna Karenina” Anna escapes from the moral thinker and anarcho-pacifist Leo Tolstoy and identifies her self with Nastassya Filippovna of Dostoevsky's Idiot, the Dying Swan of Tchaikovsky and Magarita of Michael Bulgakov. Storytelling songs and passionate dances awaits you!
