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

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 Miller High Life Theatre

Miller High Life Theatre (originally Milwaukee Auditorium) was extensively renovated between 2001 and 2003. It seats 4,086 people and can be configured into a more intimate venue that seats 2,500. The Milwaukee Auditorium was built in 1909, in a place formerly occupied by the Milwaukee Industrial Exposition Building. The cornerstone was laid on August 1, 1908, and the building was dedicated on September 21, 1909. Historical uses include concerts, circuses, political rallies and sports events. For decades the Milwaukee Auditorium boasted its own orchestra, and hosted touring concerts from such historic notables as John Phillip Sousa and Enrico Caruso.Sitting Presidents from Taft to Clinton delivered important policy addresses in the Auditorium.  Beginning in October 2001, the Auditorium was converted into a theater. The project, which cost $41.9 million, was completed on November 7, 2003. Since opening, The Milwaukee Theatre has hosted a wide range of convention, corporate, religious and political assemblies as well as Broadway musicals and other entertainment ranging from the Radio City Rockettes to the Milwaukee premier of Disney’s THE LION KING.
