What could be better than an evening of Tchaikovsky complete with a picnic and fireworks? This beloved summer tradition at the Mann returns once again on July 22. The grace and arching beauty of Swan Lake, the warmth and romantic charm of the Rococo Variations, and the mounting drama of the ever-popular 1812 Overture culminating in a splendid explosion of sound and fireworks.
