For the first time ever, Tulsa Ballet will be streaming a full-length ballet performance online, completely free of charge on Friday, April 3rd at 7:00 pm (CST) and Saturday, April 4th at 12:00 pm (CST)! Join us for an encore performance of Tchaikovsky: The Man Behind the Music, choreographed by Tulsa Ballet’s own Ma Cong. Be captivated by the story of a Russian composer known for some of the most iconic music in the world of ballet, as well as an opportunity to chat live with Resident Choreographer Ma Cong and Artistic Director Marcello Angelini.
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.
