Tolstoy's eternal masterpiece, perhaps the most famous work of grand realism, comes to life on the stage of the Novi Sad (Újvidék) Theater and is also one of the country's most visited and most awarded productions. The story of Anna Karenina is made up of short, but emotionally heated scenes before us, but in this version, instead of the threads of the original novel criticizing social conventions and the Russian citizenry, the fatalism and romantic threads come to the fore.
Anna is a kind of female Hamlet - her dilemma is no less than that of the Danish prince. "I love two people the most in the world: Vronsky and my son Seryozha," he says. But each of these two is mutually exclusive. Divorce and a hypocritically condemning society, fatal love and dark-toned emotions paint this tableau, which in the alternating roles of Márta Béres and Tímea Fülöp brought more than twenty festival awards to the Újvidék Theater in the last two years.
