Our Great Tchaikovsky
The music of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
written & performed by Hershey Felder
directed by Trevor Hay
November 29 – December 16, 2018
Leo K. Theatre
Brilliant composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky springs to life through the hands and insight of actor and pianist Hershey Felder, whose time-bending tale of culture and repression explores the mystery surrounding some of the greatest music ever written. From the unforgettable ballets Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, and The Nutcracker, to the outrageous 1812 Overture, and the brilliant symphonic works, this powerful musical tribute travels to Czarist times to ponder the inevitable enigma of genius. From the creator and performer of Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin and Beethoven As I Knew Him, George Gershwin Alone, Maestro: The Art of Leonard Bernstein, and Monsieur Chopin.
“In the hands of a pianist as virtuosic as Felder, the emotional depth and power of Tchaikovsky’s music cannot be denied. As such, Our Great Tchaikovsky unquestionably rates as one of Felder’s most dazzling shows.”
