Rasputin – Miracles Lie in the Eye of the Beholder is a rock opera about the mysterious and infamous Russian peasant, Grigori Rasputin. Written by Michael Rapp, a popular rock-artist who has written several musicals and movie scores, Rasputin's triple cd concept album features Ted Neeley (of Jesus Christ Superstar fame) as Rasputin, the British actor John Hurt as the Narrator, Amanda McBroom as the Tsarina Alexandra, and others. A one-night showcase of Rasputin was performed at the Grand Opera House in Wilmington, Delaware on December 18, 1999, again starring Ted Neeley as the Mad Monk Rasputin, James O'Neil as Tsar Nicholas II, M. Ross Ramone as Alexei, Larry Friedman as Derevenko and Christopher P. Carey as Doctor Botkin. The piece is one of many projects in line for a full production in the future, pending cast availability.
