Hershey Felder
Our Great Tchaikovsky

Due to Several Nearly Sold-out Performances,
The Wallis Extends Highly Popular Run through Sunday, August 13

(Beverly Hills, CA July 19) The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts announced today the extension of the Los Angeles premiere engagement of actor and pianist Hershey Felder’s Our Great Tchaikovsky, which opens tonight and now runs through the closing matinee performance on Sunday, August 13 at 2pm. Directed by Felder collaborator Trevor Hay, Hershey Felder’s Our Great Tchaikovsky is a time-bending tale of music, politics and one of the world’s most beloved composers.

Known for his beautiful ballets Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, The Nutcracker, and the ferocious and melodic brilliance of his symphonic works, piano concerti, overtures, operas and chamber music, a healthy 53-year-old Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky conducted the premiere of his enigmatic Symphony No. 6, “Pathétique” and, nine days later, he was dead. To this day, how and why he died is still a mystery.

The World Premiere of Our Great Tchaikovsky at San Diego Repertory Theatre and a subsequent engagement at Laguna Playhouse broke box office records and received universal acclaim from critics. The Orange County Register declared: “Our Great Tchaikovsky unquestionably rates as one of Felder’s most dazzling shows.” “A powerful emotional experience” (San Diego Union-Tribune), the Times of San Diego called it “sheer stage magic. Felder is an accomplished actor, writer and pianist. You’ll have to see this marvelous production.”

On Monday, July 31 at 7:30pm, The Wallis invites audiences to join Hershey Felder for a special one-night-only performance of Hershey Felder’s The Great American Songbook Sing-Along, taking attendees through 100 years of American music from the Gershwins, Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim, and many more. Audiences are encouraged to sing along with Felder as he leads them through the familiar notes of their favorite songs.
