Kenneth MacMillan's "Anastasia" tells the story of a woman who believes herself to be Anastasia, the sole survivor of the Romanov massacre after the Russian Revolution.
But she is currently incarcerated in an asylum, and her memories and fantasies are intermingled; she remembers the death of her husband, her rescue, and the disappearance of her child... and her own faith in her identity, which cannot be shaken.
Got a question? – Talk about Anastasia
