About the showAmerican stage performer Hershey Felder brings his acclaimed show to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Other Palace; a new theatrical venture which is dedicated to giving a platform to new work and little-known musicals. Hershey Felder Our Great Tchaikovsky plays a limited season at the venue, following the prolific career, but short-lived career, of one of the world’s greatest composers.
Hershey Felder Our Great Tchaikovsky sees Felder don the musician’s guise, taking us through Tchaikovsky’s time-bending tale of music and politics, focusing on his compositions to famous ballets and operas including Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake and The Nutcracker.
Well-known for penning hugely memorable symphonic works, piano concerti, chamber music and operas, Tchaikovsky is regarded as one of the world’s best composers, with his music used in productions around the world. But in 1893, after conducting the highly anticipated Symphony No. 6, “Pathétique”, 53-year old Tchaikovsky was found dead. To this day, his death remains a mystery.
Well-known for his portrayals of famous composers, Hershey Felder is the American actor who recently brought his show The Pianist of Willesden Lane to the St James Theatre, before it was rebranded as The Other Palace. Further shows of his have included George Gershwin Alone, Monsieur Chopin and Beethoven, As I Knew Him.
Playing for a strictly limited season, Hershey Felder Our Great Tchaikovsky is a touching celebration of the composer’s life, revealing personal stories and bringing to life some of his most enchanting music. The production plays at the London venue from September 22nd to October 22nd 2017.
