Leon Theremin, "the Russian Edison", created the worlds first electronic musical instrument; a machine so far ahead of it's time that you didn't even have to touch it to play. Arriving on American soil Theremin became an overnight celebrity. Then, on the eve of achieving his greatest ambitions, he mysteriously disappeared.

And what really happened to Leon Theremin?
Theremin's story is one of the truly great stories of the last century and we are proud to share a small part of it with New York this summer.

Tickets can be bought online if more than 24 hours in advance at or 15 minutes before the show at the venue.
