Dragons features book, lyrics and music by Sheldon Harnick and is based on Yevgeny Schwartz's play, The Dragon. After suffering through the siege of Leningrad in WWII, Schwartz felt that the Russian people deserved something better than life under the tyrant Stalin. He couldn't very well write a play about that and hope to have it produced in Soviet Russia, so he wrote a charming fantasy about a knight who rescues a damsel in distress from a dragon and what happens thereafter. Harnick's musical adaption preserves the charm, humor and romance of Schwartz's play while making the tale applicable to life under any form of government (including ours).
