Synopsis

Act I

While Alexei Karenin holds a political rally for his re-election in St. Petersburg, Count Alexei Vronsky trains in Moscow with his regiment for a Lacrosse match. Anna Karenina gives her husband support – together with her son Seryozha.
Pyotr Tchaikovsky. Festival Overture on the Danish National Anthem op. 15

At home, after the rally, Anna is overcome by a feeling of solitude.
Pyotr Tchaikovsky. Suite No. 1 op. 43, Introduzione

Her brother Stiva telephones from Moscow, asking her to intervene in a serious marriage complication. Dolly, his wife, discovered him with Miss Hull, the children’s governess. Anna travels to Moscow, where she accidently meets Alexei Vronsky – a portentous encounter. However, a worker’s terrible accident seems a bad omen to her. Dolly and Stiva quarrel. Anna comforts Dolly and the children.
Alfred Schnittke. Two Short Pieces for organ op. 149, No. 1
Pyotr Tchaikovsky. Suite No. 1, Fuga
