Moscow Ballet’s Usual Venue In Eau Claire: The Pablo Center at the Confluence

This year, the Pablo Center presents Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker streaming directly to your living room! In a regular year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is performed at the $51 million state-of-the-art Pablo Center at the Confluence. Recently completed in summer 2018, the facility provides rehearsal, teaching and support space for the University of Wisconsin’s theater program and a significantly larger performance venue for its nationally renowned music program. The arts center also will host concerts, performances and Broadway-style touring shows that no current campus or community venue can support. Located at the confluence of the Eau Claire and Chippewa rivers, the Pablo Center, a shared university-community facility, includes: a 1,200-seat theater/concert hall, a 400-seat theater and a 250-seat flexible-use space; visual arts galleries; scene, prop and costume shops; a dance studio, classrooms, rehearsal rooms and a recording studio
