The Gift of Christmas Tour Comes to Grand Forks Sunday, November 24

Moscow Ballet brings the Gift of Christmas Tour to Grand Forks with Great Russian Nutcracker performances bringing holiday magic to life and creating unforgettable memories for all ages. The company performs at Chester Fritz Auditorium on Sun., Nov. 24, 3 p.m. only.  

Moscow Ballet makes Christmas gift giving easy with the holiday performance that delights all ages…from the life-sized Kissy Doll to the fierce, red-eyed Rat King; and the Russian Troika Sleigh bringing Masha through the Snow Forest to the Land of Peace and Harmony which is populated with 10 foot tall dancing puppets, exotic flying birds and dancing couples from the world’s five great heritages. 

About The Chester Fritz Auditorium

The Chester Fritz Auditorium is built where the UND theatre tradition began many years ago...on the banks of the English Coulee. In 1965, Chester Fritz gave the University of North Dakota $1 million towards the construction of a "distinctive auditorium" on campus. A matching appropriation of $1 million from the state of North Dakota and $1 million in private bequests completed the funding for the Chester Fritz Auditorium. The gift came from a man whose fondness for the University of North Dakota has long been evident in financial support and enthusiasm for his Alma Mater.

The Chester Fritz Auditorium, a magnificent center for the performing arts, is considered the finest facility of its kind from Minneapolis to the West Coast. Since its opening, the Chester Fritz Auditorium has brought numerous nationally acclaimed performers to Grand Forks and to the University of North Dakota. The programming has varied from country western, opera, ballet, and symphonies, to Broadway Theatre shows. The Auditorium is also used for many University of North Dakota events. The Chester Fritz Auditorium held its first event October 12, 1972 when the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and Philharmonic Choir performed.
