Count Orlov is a remarkable tale of love and betrayal. It is based on one of the most dramatic episodes in the history of the Russian Empire. As the real facts of those years remain veiled in mystery, the Moscow Operetta Theatre offers its version of the story brilliantly told by Yuliy Kim.
The play is set in the second half of the 18th century during the reign of Catherine the Great. Count Alexey Orlov, who has once contributed to Catherine the Great’s rise to power, falls out of favor and is sent away in disgrace to lead the navy in Italy. While there, he meets a beautiful young woman
named Elizabeth who has aspirations for the Russian crown. She claims to be the granddaughter of Peter the Great. In an attempt to win back Catherine's affection by uncovering Elizabeth's plans,
Orlov begins an affair. However, what starts off as an innocent fling soon turns into something far more serious.
