Peter Tchaikovsky was a prolific Russian composer known for The Nutcracker. It’s about time a biopic has been made about him. His famous songs are routinely played on classical music stations daily and during Christmas time when its Nutcracker season.

Ben Barnes is an A-List actor who has a striking resemblance to Tchaikovsky. A biopic of a young Peter Tchaikovsky should cast Barnes to play him as the lead role. The story could revolve when he came to his own writing the music for the ballets The Nutcrackers, Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty.

Tchaikovsky’s music is as prevalent today as it was in 19th century. And Ben Barnes could bring him back to life.
