Revenge is a dish best served cold. Alexandre Dumas’ classic tale of revenge, set in post-Napoleonic France, is reworked as a powerful and dynamic rock opera. We begin amidst Edmond’s imprisonment and follow his escape and transformation into the Count of Monte Cristo. He plots and studies his enemies, those responsible for his false arrest and 14 years in jail. Will vengeance destroy his soul, or will he be able to escape his own terrible thirst for revenge?
