Premiere of Anna Karenina by Xameleon theatre took place in London

Another unusual production of the Russian-speaking theatre Xameleon was held at the London Cockpit Theatre. The uniqueness of the performance is in that all the main characters of the novel, including male characters, were played by four actresses. They played the role of Anna Karenina in different periods of her life.

This interpretation of the novel Anna Karenina is not a historical melodrama or a fairy tale about a beautiful life, but rather a story about society, faith and love, told by the modern language of theatre.

Actresses Alexandra Tsarkova, Anna Neverova, Vlada Lemeshevskaya, and Yana Lyapunova took part in the performance.

The performance was staged with support of the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in the UK.

Xameleon theatre is a professional Russian-speaking theatre, which introduces the audience to the Russian acting school. The first performance of the theatre was the sold-out play Love in a Nutshell based on the works of Anton Chekhov. Compatriots and non-Russian speaking audience are always present at the performances of the Xameleon theatre.
