Songs by composers such as Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, Mussorgsky, and Rachmaninoff, written with a message of peace against the backdrop of war, along with dances by four choreographers, tell this timeless story. The performance concludes with Sergei Akhunov’s Prayer for Peace – the motto for the show.
