NORD-OST, International Touring Version
By the autumn of 2004, the musical has been adapted to go on tour throughout Russia. On November 19, NORD-OST’s new version premiered with great success in Nizhny Novgorod.
Technically, the Moscow production of NORD-OST is one of the most sophisticated shows in the world, and in the touring version the creative team managed to keep all the major special effects. Similar to the stationary production, every performance of the touring version features the life-size bomber plane landing on stage right in front of the spectators’ eyes.
The launch of the touring production also makes it possible for NORD-OST to tour internationally. At present, LINK has initiated the translation of the musical into English and German.
With the comprehensive production book in hands, LINK is planning to start NORD-OST’s international operations based on licensing either complete reproduction or local production. The option of using the existing physical production set is also available.
