Relive Russian history. “Moscow is Burning” commemorates the 200th anniversary of Napoleon’s invasion of Russia, the burning of Moscow, and the eventual defeat of the Grand Armée as it retreated from the avenging Russian army and the unforgiving Russian winter. This is a spectacular evening of Russian poetry, music and mayhem. Use your imagination and come dressed as Napoleon, Kutuzov or a Moscow fire victim. Prizes will be awarded for the most creative costumes.
