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

 

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 King's Theatre

Kings Theatre - Nearly two years after its extensive restoration was announced, the historic Kings Theatre reopens in February 2015 with its first concert with Diana Ross. Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen said, "A milestone for the Flatbush community." Built in 1929, the Kings Theatre is the largest indoor theater in Brooklyn with over 3,000 seats. It closed in 1977 and was acquired by the city in 1983. The $95 million work has made sure its grand flourishes—inspired by Versailles and the Paris Opera House, no less—are glowing, with original fixtures such as chandeliers restored, new carpets, tapestries and curtains, all based on archival photographs.

The venue offers a wide spectrum of programming from local, national and international performing artists, with more than 200 performances annually. David Anderson—president for ACE Theatrical Group, the company that is operating the theater—said, "The Kings Theatre is now once again an integral part of this community, after being lost to the city for so long. We are so proud to welcome New Yorkers back to the Kings and we thank the community for its incredible support of the revitalization project. It is our hope that everyone will join us as we celebrate the historic reopening and embark on the Theatre’s inaugural year of performances."


altMoscow Ballet is honored to premiere in Brooklyn at the inaugural season of the historic and stunningly restored Kings Theatre and to become a member of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce.
