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

 

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.

About Western Manitoba Centennial Auditorium

The Western Manitoba Centennial Auditorium was first mentioned during a city council meeting in 1953. In 1958 architects presented a set of plans for a civic centre which was to be a two storey building featuring a 1,200-seat auditorium on the main floor and a 600-seat banquet hall and convention centre on the second floor. In 1962, Manitoba's Premier Duff Roblin gave the city permission to proceed with plans to build an auditorium as a 1967 Centennial project and in 1964, the Manitoba Centennial Corporation announced a $300,000 grant towards the auditorium project. 

The project's total estimated cost was $450,000, and it was to be built on the Brandon College campus. On April 28, 1966 Mayor Magnacca unveiled a model, giving residents of Western Manitoba their first glimpse of the new auditorium.On May 30, 1967 the Centennial Commissioner John Fisher officially unveiled a sign announcing the location of the auditorium on Brandon College campus. Like a beautiful monument, the Western Manitoba Centennial Auditorium rose on the corner of Twentieth Street and Princess Avenue.
