Our Great Tchaikovsky: A Play with Music

About This Show

Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky is Russia’s most famous composer and one of the greatest composers of all time, known for his beautiful lilting melodies from the ballets Romeo and Juliet, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, The Nutcracker and the ferocious brilliance of his symphonic works. At the age of 53, Tchaikovsky conducted the premiere of his enigmatic Symphony No. 6, “Pathétique,” of which he said, “Let them guess what it means…” Nine days later he was dead. To this day, how and why he died are still a mystery. The extraordinary Hershey Felder returns to The Wallis for the Los Angeles premiere of his newest work, Tchaikovsky, which unveils the life of one of the most beloved and tormented composers of all time.
