"5 Stars (out of 5) [...] Dave Malloy's Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 feels like a party from start to end: lively, intelligent and utterly engrossing [...] The dazzling variegated score - which covers musical terrain from folk songs through rock, R&B and house music - captures their story in stirring and surprising ways; [...] this is a rare and marvelous event: amid the din of New York, an oasis of artful illumination."Time Out New York
"Inventive, ravishing and full-on romantic! [...] Appearing out of nowhere to brighten the theatrical season, this thrilling new show relies on ambition, ingenuity, craft and heart."New York Post
"This astonishing new musical adapts a 70-page section of [War and Peace], mashing up imperialist Russia and an eclectic range of style,turning Tolstoy into a swoon-worthy, vodka-soaked party. It's a sensual, wild ride: rollicking music, beautiful singing, a feast for the eye, ear and mouth."NY1
"Dave Malloy may be a genius."New York Theatre Review

From the celebrated and award-winning composer Dave Malloy comes Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812, an electropop opera based on a scandalous slice of Leo Tolstoy's War & 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.
