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

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.

Dyan Mulvey Dance Academy offers courses for students from ages 3 to adult, beginner through advanced. For over 30 years, the Dyan Mulvey Dance Academy has aimed to install dance techniques and style, the physical training necessary for the body development, a feeling for movement, music appreciation, and the emotional qualities needed for dance. When students leave the studio, they will have developed a stronger character, a greater awareness of themselves physically and a better appreciation and respect for the arts. Many of the studio’s students have performed throughout the U.S., Hawaii, and Europe. Dyan and staff have choreographed many of the studio’s live performances at The Palace Theatre, as well as musicals for DeSales of Lockport.

About the Historic Palace Theatre

When the Historic Palace Theatre opened on July 18, 1925, Lock City Theater Company President A. Edmund Lee told a capacity crowd that it was "built not for the aristocracy, but for all the people" and that they had successfully "extended Broadway into Lockport and to the people of Niagara." Those statements ring true to this day, as the Palace shines like a beacon for the arts and entertainment that are so vital to the community. The Historic Palace Inc. is a community-based organization dedicated to maintaining the historic and architectural integrity of this Western New York landmark while providing a venue for the performing arts and a center for arts education.
