About Tchaikovsky's Wife

The tumultuous relationship between the most famous Russian composer of all time and his wife is the subject of director Kirill Serebrennikov’s latest film. Starring Odin Lund Biron as Pyotr Tchaikovsky and Alyina Mikhailova as Antonina Miliukova, Tchaikovsky’s Wife is both a magisterial, erotically-charged portrait of a legendary tormented artist, and a poignant and powerful examination of a disintegrating relationship.

19th century Russia is vividly evoked with stunning cinematography by Vladislav Opelyants. Not since Milos Forman’s Amadeus has the life of a great composer been so powerfully and memorably rendered.
