Hi
Yesterday I just caught a part of the above film. Anna was at the center parterre theatre watching "Swan Lake" (Vronsky was at a Grand Tier, or soemthing similar). My doubt is how accurate that is, as Swan Lake was premiered in 1877 in Moscow, and in 189-something in St Petersburg. Could the characters in the novel be really watching Swan Lake, or is that inaccurate historically?

Also I must confess I never read the novel, so I do not know if Tolstoi really mentions that specific ballet, or if that was the film director's responsibility.

It's been years since I read the book, but I recall no scene involving "Swan Lake," and I do not believe the dates match up. Sounds like you saw the version with Sophie Marceau?

Yes, Dirac, it is the version with Sophie Marceau that I saw.
