Tolstoy's story of one woman's fate is brought powerfully to life in this BBC Radio full-cast dramatisation starring Teresa Gallagher and Toby Stephens.
Anna Karenina enjoys a privileged and aristrocratic lifestyle as the wife of influential government official Alexy Karenin. Yet their ten-year marriage is devoid of tenderness, and when Anna falls in love with the handsome Count Vronsky they embark upon a deep and passionate affair. Reflecting the social conditions of the era in which it was written, Tolstoy's masterpiece sets a doomed love story against a harsh and unforgiving backdrop.

"sad yet very well narrated story"
Tolstoy's use of language is very colourful and descriptive. Story represents an era with narrative and the characters fits well into its time.
What I liked most it's how the story has been "Dramatised", very impressive voices, very well played.
Beautifully narrated, great love story. I was instantly drawn into the story, could picture every scene and felt Anna's turmoil. Very well done cast!
