In Search of Justice: Plays, Saint-Petersburg

Frank Wildhorn’s musical “The Count of Monte Cristo” is being staged for the first time in Russia at the Musical Comedy Theatre.

On the day of his engagement to be married the young seaman Edmond Dantes finds himself in prison following a false denunciation. Fourteen years later he escapes from captivity, adopts a new name — the Count of Monte Cristo — and sets about taking revenge. The musical is being staged by Miklós Gábor Kerényi, Artistic Director of the Budapest Theatre of Operetta and Musicals. A point of interest is that Frank Wildhorn has written additional musical numbers especially for the Russian version and Susanna Tsiryuk, the author of the Russian text, has substantially reworked the libretto to include the new additions. Exquisite stage constructions have been created exclusively for the St. Petersburg production. Costume designer Olga Shaishmelashvili has drawn over two hundred sketches.
