New York Times, “Moscow Ballet Great Russian Nutcracker...a magnetic sense of theater, hot ticket”
Moscow Ballet Celebrates International World Peace Day Sept 21!
2012 Premiere of Dove of Peace by Sergey Chumakov and Elena Petrichenko, Olena Nalyvaiko in Edmonton and Mariia Skoruk in El Paso
Celebrate International World Peace Day on September 21 in cities across the US and Canada with Moscow Ballet! Dancers are preparing to join Peace events in Redding CA, at the International Peace Garden in N Dakota bordering Canada, Asheville and more locations tba. Moscow Ballet’s advocacy for world peace began in 1993 with the Great Russian Nutcracker premiere in North America. Choreographed by Honored Artist of Russia and Bolshoi soloist Stanislav Vlasov, the Christmas performance featured a non-traditional storyline of peace.
Heroine Masha and the Nutcracker Prince are escorted by the “Dove of Peace,” a character exclusive to Moscow Ballet, to the “Land of Peace and Harmony” (traditionally known as the Land of Sweets). The “Dove of Peace” role was inspired by performances of Stanislav Vlasov, former Bolshoi Ballet dancer and ballet master of Moscow Ballet’s 1993 Great Russian Nutcracker, and partner Lilia Sabitova, People’s Artist of Russia. In 2012 the original single ballerina Dove of Peace, was performed by acclaimed acro-ballet duo Sergey Chumakov and Elena Petrichenko. “Knockout male dancer…Sergey Chumakov…when partnering Elena Petrichenko…confers an unusual thrill upon the work’s many lifts” writes Alastair Macaulay, Chief Dance Critic, NY Times.
