Under the artistic direction of Sergei Radchenko -- the legendary principal dancer of the famed Bolshoi Ballet -- this sparkling production boasts 50 of Russia's most talented dancers along with stunning sets and costumes, all set to the triumphant score by Tchaikovsky.

Minnesota-born and raised, Garrison Keillor is the living embodiment of the Midwestern spirit. Each week, he shares his steady thoughtfulness, old-fashioned values, traditional songs, and dry humor through his legendary, critically acclaimed radio show A Prairie Home Companion. Over three million listeners on more than 450 public radio stations now hear the show each week, and millions more discovered the show through the hit 2006 film adaptation, which starred Keillor, Meryl Streep, Lily Tomlin, and Lindsay Lohan.
He is also the author of many books, including Lake Wobegon Days (1985); The Book of Guys (1993); The Old Man Who Loved Cheese (1996); Wobegon Boy (1997); Me: By Jimmy "Big Boy" Valente As Told to Garrison Keillor (1999); Love Me (2003); Homegrown Democrat (2004); and Pontoon (2007). His newest book is Liberty: A Lake Wobegon Novel (2008).
Keillor has received numerous awards for his extensive repetoire, including a Grammy Award for his recording of Lake Wobegon Days. He has also received two Cable ACE Awards and a George Foster Peabody Award. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and recently was presented with a National Humanities Medal by the National Endowment for the Humanities. In 1994, he was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame at Chicago's Museum of Broadcast Communications. PBS’ acclaimed series, American Masters, honored Keillor by airing the documentary, The Man on the Radio in the Red Shoes, which follows Keillor through a year of taping A Prairie Home Companion and meeting his many fans throughout the United States.
With Philip Brunelle, he has performed with many orchestras, including the Chicago, Milwaukee, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, Dallas, and National symphonies. He has appeared at Wolf Trap, Carnegie Hall, and other major concert halls as a member of The Hopeful Gospel Quartet, and he has performed on his own in one-man shows across the country and on tour broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion. His shows are undoubtedly sell-out events, as the popularity of Lake Wobegon and A Prairie Home Companion continues to grow around the country, as audiences of all ages become exposed to this Midwestern sensation.
