Introduction

Based on Tchaikovsky’s biography and creation (in Estonian)
By Urmas Lennuk

The performance focuses on the famous Russian composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky. His creative burning, constant self-searching, painful contradictions in his time and his frantic passion for music and creation is inspiring in every era. In a bit Chekhov-style love story, the comic elements, grand emotions, human longing, and tragic pain is interwined.

The performance is two acts with one intermission, 2.5 hours.
