Nord-Ost (Russian: Норд-Ост, means "North-East") is a Russian musical theatre production that was composed by Aleksei Ivaschenko and Georgii Vasilyev, based on the novel The Two Captains by Veniamin Kaverin. It is a fictional story based around the historical events surrounding the discovery of the Severnaya Zemlya archipelago in 1913. The musical was first staged on October 19, 2001 in the Dubrovka theatre where it played over 400 performances.
The Moscow production of NORD-OST received an overwhelming response from the audience: month after month, on a daily schedule, full houses, standing ovation. Theatre experts also had their say: as the best musical, NORD-OST was awarded the “Golden Mask” - the highest prize of the Russian national theatre.
The successful run of the NORD-OST musical in Moscow was cut short by the attack of terrorists in October 2002. Despite all the damages, the musical was revived in February 2003.
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.
