The rock opera Karamazov is a completely new look at Dostoevsky's great novel. This is a synthesis of modern theater based on minimalism and a conceptual concert, where the main attention is focused on the artist. The combination of bright expressive music and beautiful voices immerses the audience into the abyss of earthly passions and brings to the new limits of endless love that the human heart is capable of. Only love, conquering all the vices of the soul, can change a person and give him hope for salvation. A new interpretation of a literary masterpiece can become a unique guide to the world of Dostoevsky’s most complex novel and its deepest meanings.
