TORONTO — A solo the­atri­cal per­for­mance fea­tur­ing bal­let star Mikhail Barysh­nikov will make its Cana­dian pre­mière in Toronto in Jan­uary.

Pro­duc­ers say Brod­sky/ Barysh­nikov will run Jan. 24-27 at the Win­ter Gar­den The­atre.

The stage show is based on the po­ems of No­bel lau­re­ate Joseph Brod­sky, Barysh­nikov’s long­time friend.

Barysh­nikov re­cites the po­ems in Rus­sian, Brod­sky’s mother tongue.

Alvis Herman di­rects the show, which pre­mièred in Riga, Latvia in Oc­to­ber 2015.
