Written by ERC Executive Artistic Director Eve Wolf, Tchaikovsky: None but the Lonely Heart will have scenic and costume design by Vanessa James, and lighting design by Beverly Emmons.

In a strange relationship that lasted fourteen years and that was conducted exclusively through letters, Tchaikovsky and his patroness Nadezhda von Meck were united through the invincible power of a disembodied love in which they both found refuge. Plagued with doubts about the greatness of his music, tormented by the fear of discovery of his homosexuality, and trapped in a marriage to a woman who was eventually committed to an insane asylum, Tchaikovsky found in von Meck an "invisible angel." ERC honors their unique relationship in a theatrical production featuring Tchaikovsky's Piano Trio in A Minor and some of his most moving songs.
