Tolstoy’s brash young lovers for an evening, as vodka flows and passions ignite in Dave Malloy’s electropop opera, ripped from a 70-page slice of War and Peace.

For The Record:

"The Great Comet" was originally commissioned and developed at Ars Nova in NYC, where it had its World Premiere in the Fall of 2012, and then transferred to a custom-built venue in the Meatpacking District for the Summer of 2013. The show, and the venue, then transferred to the Theater District where it continued its run into the Spring of 2014. It played engagement at the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, MA, where it was expanded to a traditional, proscenium venue in December 2015.
