A Soviet Spectacular

Featuring pianist Elena Baksht

Passion, romance, emotion, brilliance, longing—all these and more describe the compelling symphonic sounds of Russia. The stunning Russian pianist Elena Baksht returns to our stage, performing Tchaikovsky’s monumental Piano Concerto No. 1—always an audience favorite. Beauty, pathos, exultation—the Russians have it all. And throw in some Nutcracker, a bit of 1812 Overture along with a few surprises, and you’ll have the makings of a musical repast fit for a Czar.

Choreographed and scripted with original Rat Pack routines, you’ll think you’re swingin’ at the Sands Hotel in Vegas. A great way to bring the season’s international travels all the way back home.
