Announcing Moscow Ballet’s Dove of Peace Tour in Boston!

Experience Moscow Ballet’s Dove of Peace Tour  presenting world class ballerinas and danseurs in over 100 cities across North America this holiday season. CNNspoke with Producer Akiva Talmi about the ballet’s unique Dove of Peace character which was inspired by Bolshoi Principal Artists’ performance in NYC in 1957, and first presented by Moscow Ballet as a single ballerina costumed in 2 lightly feathered wings. Talmisays, “Masha flies on the wings of the Dove of Peace around the world seeking peace and harmony. She goes to France, Italy, Africa -- all around the world, and she finds peace and harmony through love.” In Act II Masha and her Nutcracker Prince arrive in the “Land of Peace and Harmony” (traditionally called the Land of Sweets) and celebrate the great heritages of the world including African, Asian, European, Hispanic and Slavic.

Local Audition Information Coming Soon for Moscow Ballet's 2018 Boston Performances!

The School of Classical Ballet was founded in 1985 by Anna Myer and Patricia Adelmann. For 30 years the school has provided students with classical ballet training and helped to develop student appreciation for dance as an art form. In 2009, under the direction of Ariella Amshalem and Kirsta Sendziak, additional dance forms were incorporated into The School of Classical Ballet curricula. Kirsta Sendziak continues to provide students the quality of instruction upon which the school was founded. The School of Classical Ballet is a technique-based school. Performances are all-inclusive opportunities for students to showcase their technique and gain experience performing for an audience.

About The Orpheum

The Orpheum was built on the site of the Boston Music Hall in 1852. In 1900 the building was gutted and rebuilt within the old walls for conversion into a vaudeville theatre and reopened on February 12, 1905 as the Empire Theatre. When Percy Williams took over the theatre on September 3, 1906 it was renamed the Orpheum but sold shortly thereafter to Marcus Loew in 1910. In January 1916 the theatre reopened hosting a combination of vaudeville and film. Vaudeville was replaced in the 1930’s with firstrun double features. In 1965 film distributors dropped the exclusive first run policy for downtown theatres. Loew’s abandoned the Orpheum Theatre in 1972. It was renamed the Aquarius and was once again a home for live performances. In May of 1974, Sarah Caldwell moved the Opera Company in and renamed it the Orpheum. It now plays host to a succession of live performances.
