April 22 – May 8, 2022 at Riverside Theatre
The Iowa premiere of an Obie-Award winning “electropop opera” based on a scandalous slice of Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace. Young and impulsive, Natasha Rostova arrives in Moscow to await the return of her fiancé from the front lines. When she falls under the spell of the roguish Anatole, it is up to Pierre, a family friend in the middle of an existential crisis, to pick up the pieces of her shattered reputation. A bold, ambitious, and celebratory piece of theatre to mark Riverside’s first season in its new home.
