Natasha, Pierre and The Great Comet of 1812 - London

Natasha, Pierre and The Great Comet of 1812 to open at the Donmar Warehouse in London

Natasha, Pierre and The Great Comet of 1812 will receive its UK premiere at the Donmar Warehouse later this year.

Inspired by a slice of Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace, Dave Malloy’s acclaimed musical mixes electro-pop, rock, opera, folk and musical theatre in its retelling of Tolstoy’s brash young lovers scandalising the court of Imperial Russia.

At the 71st Tony Awards in 2017, the show received 12 nominations, including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Orchestration, and Best Director for Rachel Chavkin. Although it did not win in these categories, with the gongs going to Dear Evan Hansen, it did take home awards for Best Set and Best Lighting.

The original Broadway cast included Josh Groban, Denée Benton, Lucas Steele, Brittain Ashford, Grace McLean, Lilli Cooper, Manik Choksi, Nicholas Belton, Gelsey Bell and Paul Pinto.

Casting is rumoured to be in full swing for this highly anticpated premiere.

The show will be directed by Timothy Sheader, and the creative team also includes choreography by Ellen Kane, musical supervision by Nicholas Skilbeck, set design by Leslie Travers, costume design by Evie Gurney, sound design by Nick Lidster and Gareth Tucker for Autograph, musical direction by Sam Young, casting by Pippa Ailion for Pippa Ailion and Natalie Gallacher Casting, and the associate director is Fiona Dunn.

The musical is based on Part 8 of Leo Tolstoy’s novel where the young, naive Countess Natasha heads to Moscow to meet her future in-laws but is swept off her feet by the aristocratic rouge ladies man, Anatole; the show is also intertwined with the story of Pierre, the rich outsider who feels he is wasting his life.

Natasha, Pierre and The Great Comet of 1812 will run at the Donmar Warehouse in London from 7 December 2024 to 8 February 2025.
