About This Show

Natasha is young, Anatole is hot, and Andrey isn’t here…But what about Pierre? Based on a scandalous 70-page slice of War and Peace, this electropop opera (from the musical mind of Dave Malloy who brought Three Pianos, Ghost Quartet, and Beowulf: A Thousand Years of Baggage to A.R.T.) is Tolstoy like you’ve never experienced him before. Step into a glamorous, romantic world of chandeliers, vodka and caviar in the salons and opera houses of 19th-century Moscow, where passions ignite as Napoleon’s war rages outside the city. With the cast and musicians swirling among audience members (in an immersive set designed by 2015 MacArthur ‘Genius Grant’ Winner, Mimi Lien), this new musical brings to life the heart of literature’s most epic tale of love and fate.
