Brodsky/Baryshnikov in UK Premiere at the Apollo theatre!
Directed by Alvis Hermanis, based on the poems of Joseph Brodsky and performed by Mikhail Baryshnikov, Brodsky/Baryshnikov will open in Apollo Theatre in London for only 4 days, between 3 and 6 May 2017.
Brodsky/Baryshnikov is a one-man show based on the poems of Nobel laureate Joseph Brodsky, performed by Mikhail Baryshnikov. Conceived and directed by Alvis Hermanis, noted Latvian director of The New Riga Theatre, Brodsky / Baryshnikov is an emotional journey deep into the poet's visceral and complex compositions.
Performed in Russian, Brodsky's mother tongue, Baryshnikov recites a selection of his long-time friend’s poignant and eloquent works. His subtle physicality transports the audience into Hermanis' reverent imagining of Brodsky's interior world.

Tickets are now on sale for the strictly limited 4 show run of Brodsky/Baryshnikov in London's Apollo Theatre, West End. Running from 3-6 May 2017, this one man show features famed ballet dancer and actor Mikhail Baryshnikov bringing to life the words of Nobel Prize winner and US Poet Laureate Joseph Brodsky. Brodsky and Baryshnikov each left the Soviet Union in the 1970s-- Brodsky to the United States and Baryshnikov to Canada. Baryshnikov met Brodsky in 1974, shortly after he was forced by Russian authorities to leave his home. The two remained close until Brodsky's death in 1996.
