Cayetano Soto: Peter I. Tschaikowski

Leipziger Ballett
Cayetano Soto, choreographer
Gewandhaus Orchestra
Christoph Mathias Müller

A dance story about Tchaikovsky, illuminating the long-hidden moments of his life. Through his compositions, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky influenced and shaped classical ballet like few other composers. The myth of his music remains unbroken to this day. Cayetano Soto draws an engaging portrait of a man who could not live his life the way he wanted to. In "Tchaikovsky", the view behind the glorious moments of a biography is revealed - in brokenness, courage and genius.
