About This Show

Brilliant composer Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky springs to life through the hands and insight of piano  virtuoso Hershey Felder, whose timebending tale of culture and repression explores the mystery  surrounding some of the greatest music ever written. From the unforgettable ballets Swan LakeSleeping 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.

PRODUCED BY SAMANTHA F. VOXAKIS, KAREN RACANELLI AND ERIK CARSTENSEN
