Announcing Moscow Ballet’s Dove of Peace Tour in Sioux Falls!

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 Washington Pavillion

The Mary W. Sommervold Hall is located at the Washington Pavilion. The building began as a renovation of Washington High School; the school was eventually relocated to another area of Sioux Falls. The building then became a venue for the performing arts, visual arts, interactive science, and educational opportunities. In addition to Sommervold Hall, the Pavilion features the Kirby Science Discovery Center and the Husby Performing Arts Center, and is home to cultural partners such as the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra, the Sioux Falls Arts Council, and the South Dakota Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
