The story of the last Russian Monarch sets the stage for this magnificent epic musical.
The love of Nicolas and Alexandra endures in the face of political intrigue,

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!
TSARINA can be performed with as few as 17 actors-with doubles. Easily enlarged to 50 or more for larger ensembles.
