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

 

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 EPCOR CENTRE'S 'Jack Singer Concert Hall'

Answering a growing need for a proper performance space in the region, the Calgary Centre for Performing Arts (CCPA) was established as a charitable organization in the 1970s. The venue, anchored by the historic Burns Building and Public Building, officially opened in 1985 to much fanfare.

Now called the Epcor Centre's 'Jack Singer Concert Hall', the theater hosts a variety of productions and performers, such as the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Alberta Theatre Project, K.D. Lang, and Celtic Thunder.
