Conversations with Clergy

This is a pilot project, sponsored by the USU Interfaith Initiative, so we are intentionally beginning small.

We encourage you to drop by and have a conversation with these well-trained clergy members about anything that is on your heart or mind. For information on names and affiliations of clergy who will be available on any given Tuesday afternoon, please visit the Interfaith Initiative website at http://interfaith.usu.edu/interfaith_support_services.

Anna Karenina

Arts/Entertainment

In a world of power and knowledge, Anna Karenina is a woman who dares to obey her heart by leaving her scrupulous husband, Karenin, and traveling with her charming lover, Count Vronsky, across Europe in a scandalous affair. Playwright Helen Edmundson illuminates the original story's grand pattern: how the adulterous Anna travels towards disintegration and death while her brother, young landowner Levin, travels toward maturity and a sense of wholeness with his true love, Kitty. Both unique and universal, Anna Karenina is saturated with deep colors and delicate patterns, with riveting motion and rich music, with memorable characters and powerful storytelling. Tolstoy's epic novel remains touching and universal through the lens of this power stage adaptation.
