Moscow Ballet’s Usual Venue In Oxford: Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts

This year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is streaming in Oxford, directly to your living room! In a regular year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is performed at the Ford Center. Raised in a generations-old tradition of philanthropy, which began more than 150 years ago with a $25 donation from her family to the Andrew Female College Building Fund in Randolph County, Georgia, Gertrude Castellow Ford established the Gertrude C. Ford Foundation in Jackson, Mississippi, with a very generous gift in 1991. In 1998, the Ford Foundation awarded The University of Mississippi $20 million to design and build the Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts on the Oxford campus. At six stories tall and 88,000 square feet, the Ford Center features two performance spaces, state-of-the-art theatrical production facilities, excellent acoustic qualities, well-appointed lobbies and comfortable seating for 1,050 in the main hall. This regal facility is a physical testament to a life well lived.
