Description "In this explosive new musical romance based on Boris Pasternak's 20th-century Russian masterpiece, Doctor Yurii Zhivago is a man divided against himself - on the one hand a dedicated husband, father and healer; on the other a poet, dreamer and sensualist. Reflecting his struggle the musical swirls around him in a panoramic portrait of a nation in upheaval, and tells a story that is at once epic and personal, funny and heartbreaking, impetuously romantic and bitingly political."
