St. Petersburg - Three Centuries of Murderous Desire
recreates the drama of this absurd and brilliant city, beginning with the homicidal megalomania of its founder
and the sadism of its early rulers.
It will follow its tyrants, subjects, subversives, artists, lovers and entrepreneurs as St Petersburg first turns itself into a vast work of art and then into the crucible for revolution, forming a backdrop to the great conflicts and upheavals of the twentieth century.
The story will continue to the present day, when, once more, the city's fate hangs in the balance.
