CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020, work is underway to re-open safely. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
As the story begins, Prince Alexis has set up his mistress, Stefana, in his St Petersburg palace. Stefana's true love is the young infantry officer Vassili, from whom she has concealed her new aristocratic connection. The unsuspecting Vassili arrives to visit his old nanny, Nikona, before departing for the Crimean War, unaware that she is now his lover's housekeeper. Stefana enters, and she and her lover recognise each other. Then Prince Alexis uncovers the liaison and has Vassili condemned to hard labour in Siberia where Stefana soon follows. During the Easter festivities, Stefana and Vassili seize their chance to escape. The guards see them and open fire. Stefana is hit and dies in her lover's arms.
