The passionate music. The double life. His own words. In a strange relationship lasting 14 years and conducted exclusively through letters, Tchaikovsky and his patroness, Madame von Meck, were united by an unconventional love in which they both found refuge. Plagued with doubts about the greatness of his music and tormented by the fear of exposure of his homosexuality, Tchaikovsky found in von Meck an “invisible angel.”
Tchaikovsky: None But the Lonely Heart is a fully staged theatrical concert that blends music, theater, and dance. Featuring Tchaikovsky’s epic piano trio in A minor, violin and cello works, and some of his most moving songs.
