This Vibrant, Thrillingly Imagined New Musical
From celebrated and award-winning composer Dave Malloy comes Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812, an electropop opera inspired by a scandalous slice of Leo Tolstoy’s War & Peace. The musical brings us just inches from Tolstoy’s brash young lovers as they light up Moscow in a “heaven-sent fireball” (The New York Times) of romance and passion.
“One of the decade’s best musicals” (Time Out New York), THE GREAT COMET has “rousing music and ravishing performances” (Daily News) with a groundbreaking score that mixes rock, pop, soul, folk, and electronic dance music with classic Broadway.
Natasha is a beautiful ingenue visiting Moscow while she waits for her beloved fiance Andrey to return from the war. In a moment of indiscretion, she is seduced by the dashing (but already married) Anatole and her position in society is ruined. Her only hope lies with Pierre, the lonely outsider whose love and compassion for Natasha may be the key to her redemption… and to the renewal of her soul.
This Tony Award®-winning musical makes its South Bay premier at San Jose Playhouse and is a don’t miss experience!
