Since 2005, the New National Theatre, Tokyo (NNTT) has conducted the Invitational Programme for Performing Arts in the Region to invite exceptional works from throughout the country in cooperation with performing arts organizations in all regions of Japan. In this fourth year of the program, NNTT will invite the Homura Tomoi Ballet Company to perform.
The Homura Tomoi Ballet Company was established in 1937. Based in the Kansai region of Japan, they have gained acclaim through their wealth of stage experience, performing in Tokyo, Osaka, and overseas, and have received such accolades as the National Arts Festival Award and the Osaka Cultural Festival Award.
We hope that you will enjoy one of the masterpieces of the company’s repertoire, Anna Karenina, a work filled with highlights, including extravagant artwork and set designs.


Anna Karenina, the wife of a count, meets the military officer Vronsky at a train station. Although she has a husband and child, Vronsky falls in love with Anna at first sight, and despite her attempts to evade his passion, before she knows it she has fallen in love with him as well. Anna and Vronsky make a home together and the couple is exceedingly happy. But in time, Anna begins to feel distance growing between them little by little, and she is treated coldly by society as well, gradually leading her to feel that there is no place she belongs.
