Choreographer Ralf Dörnen availed himself entirely of music of Mieczysław Weinberg for his new production of Lew Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina. His work selection for the ballet in 2 acts is compiled from Weinberg’s Symphonies No. 5, No. 17 and No. 20 as well as from his concerto for violoncello and orchestra. So for the first time there will be dance to these works.

The Theater Vorpommern premiers the ballet on 31 January 2015 in Stralsund, followed by their houses in Greifswald on 21 February 2015 and in Putbus on 19 April 2015. Stage and costumes: Klaus Hellenstein.

The Philharmonic Orchestra Vorpommern will be conducted by Henning Ehlert.
