Announcing Moscow Ballet’s Dove of Peace Tour in San Antonio!

Experience Moscow Ballet’s Dove of Peace Tour  presenting world class ballerinas and danseurs in over 100 cities across North America this holiday season. CNN spoke 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 Majestic Theater

The Majestic Theatre was designed and built in 1929, with a grand opening presentation of the "Fox Movietone Follies of 1929." For many years it was the largest theater in Texas and the second largest movie house in the country.

Later designated a National Historic Landmark, the theater was closed temporarily in the mid-1970s in the wake of a changing audience. It reopened in 1976, undergoing renovations and expansion throughout the next 15 years.

Today, the theater is home to the San Antonio Symphony, and has hosted musicians such as B.B. King and Sting; comedians including Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock; and Broadway tours of shows like The Phantom of the Opera and The Lion King.
