Announcing Moscow Ballet’s Dove of Peace Tour in Grand Forks!

 

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 Chester Fritz Auditorium

The Chester Fritz Auditorium is built where the UND theatre tradition began many years ago...on the banks of the English Coulee. In 1965, Chester Fritz gave the University of North Dakota $1 million towards the construction of a "distinctive auditorium" on campus. A matching appropriation of $1 million from the state of North Dakota and $1 million in private bequests completed the funding for the Chester Fritz Auditorium. The gift came from a man whose fondness for the University of North Dakota has long been evident in financial support and enthusiasm for his Alma Mater.

The Chester Fritz Auditorium, a magnificent center for the performing arts, is considered the finest facility of its kind from Minneapolis to the West Coast. Since its opening, the Chester Fritz Auditorium has brought numerous nationally acclaimed performers to Grand Forks and to the University of North Dakota. The programming has varied from country western, opera, ballet, and symphonies, to Broadway Theatre shows. The Auditorium is also used for many University of North Dakota events. The Chester Fritz Auditorium held its first event October 12, 1972 when the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and Philharmonic Choir performed.
