By Dave Malloy

From the celebrated and award-winning composer Dave Malloy comes Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812, "both the most innovative and the best new musical to open on Broadway since Hamilton!" - The New York Times.

Set in 1812, the astronomic musical follows the young and spontaneous Natasha who awaits the return of her beloved Andrey - the fiancé on the front lines.
One night at the Opera, in a city exploding with hedonism and opulent excess, Natasha falls passionately in love with the dashing, roguish, (and already married) Anatole. To solve her love conundrum she turns to the lonely Pierre - a friend in the middle of an existential crisis who makes it his mission to extricate her from risk of ruin and in doing so, renew his own soul.

Following a critically exalted premiere at Ars Nova in New York City, a subsequent Off-Broadway transfer, and an acclaimed run on Broadway, this award-winning musical makes its Australian premiere at Darlinghurst Theatre Company directed by Dean Drieberg (Hamilton, Resident Director), musical direction by Claire Healy (SIX, Musical Director) and choreographed by Brendan Yeates (Hamilton, Resident Dance Supervisor).
It draws on an eclectic mix of musical styles including folk, indie-rock, electro-pop and techno, making it one of the most unique and form-defying musicals ever seen on Broadway.

Nominated for 12 Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Original Score.
