Tchaikovsky: The Man Behind The Music
March 23-26, 2023
Back by popular demand, Tchaikovsky returns to the Tulsa PAC with live accompaniment by the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra! Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky is the creator of the iconic music for some of the most beloved ballets in history. Audience favorites include the beautiful melodies found in The Nutcracker, The Sleeping Beauty, and Swan Lake, among others.
While Tchaikovsky was celebrated for his professional success and popularity, the societal constraints of life in 19th century Russia created constant inner conflict between his private life and the public persona society required of him. This stunning and inspiring performance delves into the complicated personal life of this acclaimed musician and features a stellar creative team that includes composer Oliver Peter Graber, Russian historian Daniela Kolic, designer Tracy Grant Lord, and Choreographer Ma Cong. The musical score features a blend of Tchaikovsky’s greatest works along with other influential composers of the time, as well as original music by Oliver Peter Graber.
