Brief Plot

2 sides to every story

The death of the Wicked Witch of the West, Elphaba begins the story. After the Good Witch of the North, Glinda arrives in the Land of Oz, the citizens ask her if she knows Elphaba.

Then, the flashback comes revealing that Elphaba is a child born from Melena’s relationship with another man other than her husband. Even so, Melena and her husband have another daughter named Nessarose. Both Elphaba and Nessarose are sent to study at Shiz University.

Because of Elphaba’s talent in magic, the headmistress of the university enrolls her to the school’s curriculum specifically for magic. Then, here comes Glinda, who becomes her roommate.

In that university, Elphaba has a favorite professor named Dr. Dillamond, who is a talking animal. However, all animals are forgetting how to speak, and he is kicked out of the university.

This incident has made Elphaba vows to protect all the animals of Oz. Then, the Wizard of Oz calls both Elphaba and Glinda.

Elphaba decides to escape from the Wizard, though after she knows he isn’t capable of doing things. Fiyero, Glinda’s fiancé, and Elphaba’s secret admirer leaves to find her. She comes back to the castle after hearing that Nessarose has been killed. Then, Dorothy comes stealing Nessarose’s slippers, the parting gift of their father to her.

The scene continues to where Elphaba and Glinda say a final goodbye. Dorothy throws water to Elphaba, and she appears to melt away. However, she is alive since she just fell through a trap door. Then, she runs with Fiyero and leaves Oz behind.
