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 the beautiful ballets Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake and The Nutcracker, and the ferocious and melodic brilliance of his symphonic works, piano concerti, overtures, operas and chamber music, a healthy 53-year-old 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.
An award-winning actor and musician Hershey Felder created and directed last season’s sell-out hit, ‘The Pianist of Willesden Lane’ and now returns direct from an acclaimed US Tour with his unique and moving blend of piano virtuosity and musical biography.

A masterpiece of modern cinema, Federico Fellini’s 1957 Oscar-winning film, La Strada (The Road), is brought to life on stage at The Other Palace in a brand new adaptation by Olivier Award nominee Sally Cookson.
With music composed by Benji Bower, the production receives its London premiere at The Other Palace and is based on one of the most influential films ever made in its first ever UK stage adaptation.
A soul-searching story filled with beauty, sadness, humour and acute observation, La Strada tells the tragic and tender tale of wide-eyed Gelsomina who is sold by her penniless mother to the brutish strongman Zampano, a travelling sideshow performer.
Their journey through the Italian countryside leads them to a ragtag touring circus where they meet Il Matto, the free-spirited tightrope walker, who tries to rekindle Gelsomina’s broken spirit.
