Doctor Zhivago

Doctor Zhivago





This epic musical is based on the 1957 Nobel Prize-winning Boris Pasternak novel and the 1965 Academy Award-winning film.


Story:

In the early 20th century, revolution is stirring in Russia. Doctor Zhivago, a political idealist and aristocrat by birth, is married with children, but finds himself drawn from them physically by politics and emotionally by the alluring Lara Antipov. As war in Russia rages on and the love story between Zhivago and Lara escalates in complexity, life becomes complicated.
