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

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 Joan and Irwin Jacobs Music Center

The Joan and Irwin Jacobs Music Center is the home of the San Diego Symphony. It is a multi-functional facility that can host concerts, comedy shows, corporate & civic events, film screenings and more inside its performance chamber, known as Copley Symphony Hall.

The Jacobs Music Center's Copley Symphony Hall began life as The Fox Theatre movie palace in 1929, part of the nationwide Fox theaters chain. It became the property of the San Diego Symphony in 1984 and was extensively renovated at that time. Significant upgrades to the stage and backstage facilities have occurred since then, including the recent completion of Grosvenor Family Musician Center. Great care has been taken to preserve much of the original look of the lobbies and performance chamber, however.
