‘My Brother Peter’, a romantic score for Valentine’s night, features at The Source Arts Centre on Friday, February 14th (8pm).

Much has been written about Tchaikovsky’s relationships, his sexuality, failed marriage, familial ties, disputes and their impact on his musical career. Tchaikovsky was a man of intrigue. A unique night is promised as one of Ireland’s biggest stars of stage and screen Bosco Hogan takes on the role of the composer’s brother Modest.

The Irish Chamber Orchestra joins forces with award-winning theatre director Patrick Mason to present an original piece of theatre ‘My Brother Peter’, with live orchestra based on the life and works of Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky. This original production, written by Mason, provides a rare snapshot of the composer as seen through the eyes of his brother, Modest and offers some understanding of the complexities of man who wrote some of the best-loved music ever written.

Tickets are priced at €20 (€18 concession). For all bookings please call 0504 90204 or visit www.thesourceartscentre.ie. Why not make it a very special Valentine’s and book in for pre-show meal? Call 0504 58858 for more details.
