Announcing Moscow Ballet’s Dove of Peace Tour in Los Angeles!

 

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 Wiltern Theatre

Originally the Warner Brothers Western Theater when it first opened in 1931, the Wiltern Theatre reopened as such a few years later. The theater was sold in 1956, and by the late 1970s the building had fallen into disrepair—a local group of historic preservationists saved the building from demolition on two occassionas.

Following several years of renovations, the theater reopened to the public in 1985. Today, the Wiltern hosts live performances and concerts, as well as televised events and has served as a location for several feature films.
