The Master and Margarita

The Master and Margarita

3f, 6m, chorus

An adaptation from the novel by Mikail Bulgakov, written with composer Margaret Pine.

The Master and Margarita begins on a hot spring night, when the devil arrives in Moscow, accompanied by a beautiful naked witch and a huge talking black cat with a fondness for chess and vodka. Before it ends, heads will roll beneath trolleybuses, deals will be made with the devil, true love will overcome both good and evil, and it will be proven, once and forever, that great manuscripts don’t burn. A triumph of the artist’s voice over a totalitarian state. A heartbreaking love story.
