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

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 the Casper Events Center

If it’s happening in Wyoming, chances are it’s happening at the Casper Events Center. Built high on a hill overlooking the city, Casper Mountain, and the scenic Platte River Valley, the Casper Events Center lends new meaning to the term “accommodating.” Each year, people attend concerts, tradeshows, conferences and banquets, or sporting events at our facility.

Located nearly equidistant between Billings, Rapid City, Salt Lake City, Denver, Omaha, and Boise, the Casper Events Center has been proud host of a wide variety of theatrical and musical acts, ranging from big-name recording artists (such as Reba McEntire, Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper, ZZ Top, BB King, Sir Elton John, and Carrie Underwood) to the highly successful Broadway In Casper series.
