Overview

American stage actor and Broadway performer Hershey Felder brings his acclaimed show to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s recently rebranded The Other Palace, focusing on the life of one of music’s greatest composers. Hershey Felder Our Great Tchaikovsky plays at the London venue for a limited season, and follows the astounding career of the celebrated musician.

Embodying the role of Tchaikovsky, Felder takes us through his tumultuous life story; through a time-bending tale of gorgeous music and changing politics, to his compositions of famous ballets and operas including Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake and The Nutcracker.

Widely known for his hugely memorable symphonic works, piano concerti, chamber music and operas, Tchaikovsky is regarded as one of the world’s best composers, with his music revived across the globe. But in 1893, after conducting Symphony No. 6, “Pathétique”, a healthy, 53-year old Tchaikovsky was found dead. To this day, his death is still a mystery.

Hershey Felder is best known for his myriad of shows that see him transform into some of music’s greatest names. Past shows have included George Gershwin Alone, Monsieur Chopin, Beethoven, As I Knew Him, Maestro: The Art of Leonard Bernstein and Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin. Felder twice brought his show The Pianist of Willesden Lane to the St James Theatre in 2016, before it was rebranded to The Other Palace.

Playing strictly limited performances at the London venue, Hershey Felder Our Great Tchaikovsky brings to life the great composer and his enchanting music, charting the ultimate highs and lows of his life. Hershey Felder Our Great Tchaikovsky plays from September 22nd to October 22nd 2017.

‘Our Great Tchaikovsky’ was a complete joy to watch and I learnt so much about the great composer in this one man show. At times I was moved, at times I was laughing and at others I was enthralled by the stories he had to tell about his life growing up in Russia. The set was so simple – a piano perched to one side along with portraits of family members and friends projected onto a giant screen at the back of the stage as he told his story. And of course, the music was mesmerising. At times I just closed my eyes and was lost in the enchantment of each note. Even if you are not a Tchaikovsky fan, I would urge you to see this as it’s a treat.

Really fascinating way to learn about the composer's life. A one man performance that was a mixture between narration, acting and a concert.
