What Is the Story of Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812?
This new musical is based on a particularly juicy subplot of Leo Tolstoy’s masterpiece War and Peace, telling the story of a young girl named Natasha who is betrothed to Andrey, who is off to war. In his absence, Natasha strikes up a relationship with the attractive Anatole, whose rebellious nature causes Andrey’s best friend Pierre to be on alert to the budding romance.
What Is Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 Like?
This innovative new musical puts the audience right in the middle of the action as the performers tell a completely sung-through story inspired by Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace. Audiences are transported to a Russian opera house (really, they’re inside the specially designed tented "club Kazino"). The actors utilize the entire space, so there’s not a bad seat in the house—and you may even get up close and personal with some of the characters!
Is Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 Good for Kids?
