SYNOPSIS

Tsarina is a musical based on the true story of Nicholas and Alexandra, the last of the Romanov Russian Monarchs. The mid-nineteenth century was a time when political treachery, greed, and superstition abounded in Europe and Russia, and religious beliefs and traditions were challenged. The couple’s devotion transcended incredible odds, and their love story remains one of the greatest romances of all times!
