Mother Russia, which is set in 1991 Moscow, tells "the provocative tale of one Russian family and an intrepid American reporter caught between the conflicting forces that brought the downfall of the Soviet Union and shaped the destiny of 21st Century Russia," according to press notes.

The musical was penned by Andrew J. Wight (composer/lyricist) and Winston Shaw (librettist/lyricist). Tim Janis is the arranger and producer.

Tickets, priced $35-$45, are available by calling (212) 247-7800 or by visiting CarnegieHall.org.
