La Mer, September 15-October 2, 2016

Fletcher Opera Theater

Claude Debussy’s iconic La Mer, with all the dynamic energy and imagery of the sea, serves as the latest musical inspiration for Choreographer in Residence Zalman Raffael. Debussy created La Mer as three “symphonic sketches” to evoke the essence of the ocean and now Raffael will bring them to life with the color of Neptune’s majesty.

 

Don Quixote, October 13-30, 2016

Fletcher Opera Theater

Scenes of love and battles with windmills have filled our hearts with humor and pathos since 1605 when Cervantes first set forth his tarnished knight, Don Quixote, into the world along with his loyal sidekick Sancho Panza. Robert Weiss finished his quest to tell this centuries old tale in 2008 when the News and Observer dubbed it “one of his very best creations, a huge crowd pleaser.” Don Quixote is imagination come to life. This production commemorates the 400th anniversary of Cervantes' death in 1616.

 

Carmina Burana, November 23-27, 2016

Raleigh Memorial Auditorium

Lynne Taylor Corbett’s Carmina Burana, with live music by the North Carolina Master Chorale under the baton of Alfred E. Sturgis, was hailed by the News and Observer as “wonderful theater, performed by a troupe with surprising artistic depth.” The ballet explores love, greed and obsession to Carl Orff’s pulsating score as the wheel of fortune spins in the contemporary setting of Wall Street.

 

The Nutcracker, December 3-24, 2016

Raleigh Memorial Auditorium/DPAC

15th Anniversary

Join us as we celebrate the 15th Anniversary of Carolina Ballet’s annual classic, The Nutcracker, a holiday tradition perfect for the whole family.  As a subscriber, you receive a 20% discount as well as the opportunity to reserve the best
seats before they go on sale to the public. The only Nutcracker in the country with real illusions, created by world-renowned magician Rick Thomas.

 

The Little Mermaid, February 2-19, 2017

Fletcher Opera Theater

Join us under the sea as Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale, The Little Mermaid, is brought to life in this “large-scale, visually dazzling piece” according to the News and Observer. Lynne Taylor-Corbett conjures an enchanting vision of a young mermaid with the dulcet voice, who will risk it all for love in a daring deal with a vengeful sea witch; all crafted to an original score by Michael Moricz. In addition, we present George Balanchine’s elegant Who Cares?, set to George Gershwin Hollywood favorites.

 

Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, March 9-26, 2017

Fletcher Opera Theater

Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Robert Weiss’ celebration of nature’s enduring cycle, will “burst forth with shocking vividness, teeming with undeniable life force…It’s thrumming, interlocked motion making a powerful engine for dance,” according to Indy Week. This ballet sold out in its initial run in 2014 and many of our subscribers have been asking for its return.

 

Rhapsody in Blue, April 20-23, 2017

Raleigh Memorial Auditorium

George Gershwin’s epic American masterwork Rhapsody in Blue will transport you to a world envisioned by Carolina Ballet’s Choreographer in Residence, Zalman Raffael, as he explores Gershwin’s ever-changing rhythms and moods in his deftly sensitive ballet; Rhapsody. Originally created as a studio work, Rhapsody had its stage premiere in the Fletcher Theater in 2013. This season Raffael will reimagine this work as it graces Raleigh’s largest stage, and answers the call of this American classic.

 

Carmen, May 18-21, 2017

Raleigh Memorial Auditorium

Carolina Ballet’s Carmen is so rich with the allure and bravado of this sultry tale that it led the Washington Post to pronounce that “the best full-evening story ballets of the past quarter century are currently being choreographed in Raleigh by Robert Weiss.” Called the “definitive Carmen” by the Winston Salem Journal, this ballet, with music performed live by the Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle, tells the story of a woman born to be free who captures the hearts and souls of the
men who love her.

ROMEO & JULIET
February 1-18, 2018
Fletcher Opera Theater

No love story is more beautiful or touching than Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet-the story of star crossed lovers, dueling families, intrigue, deception, and a tragic twist of fate. Robert Weiss’ Romeo & Juliet is filled with dramatic sword fights, stunning costumes, and
breathtaking dancing that brings life to the longing and loss of this epic tragedy, set to Prokofiev’s epic score. The perfect show for you and your Valentine!


“There aren’t enough accolades in my arsenal to accurately describe Carolina Ballet’s…full-length ‘Romeo and Juliet.”- Roy C. Dicks, News & Observer

 

BOLÉRO - WORLD PREMIERE
March 8-25, 2018
Fletcher Opera Theater

Lynne Taylor-Corbett will return to present an all new ballet set to Ravel’s Boléro. Originally composed as a ballet commissioned by Russian actress and dancer Ida Rubinstein, Boléro, which premiered in 1928, is Ravel’s most famous musical composition. Over the years
Ms. Taylor-Corbett has created works for Carolina Ballet such as Carmina Burana, Carolina Jamboree, Dracula, The Little Mermaid, and this season’s The Ugly Duckling.

 

GEORGE BALANCHINE’S SERENADE
April 26-29, 2018
Raleigh Memorial Auditorium

Serenade is the first original ballet George Balanchine created in America and it has not been performed by Carolina Ballet since our inaugural season in 1998. Although Balanchine insisted Serenade had no “story”, the ballet is not without meaning. More poetry than narrative, it is the imagery of
dreams and mystery, danced in the moonlight. While its true meaning has been debated since its creation, one thing is sure…Serenade is the romance of Tchaikovsky’s music come to life.

 

SLEEPING BEAUTY
May 17-20, 2018
Raleigh Memorial Auditorium

Once upon a time, in a kingdom far away, a beautiful princess was born; a princess destined by a terrible curse to prick her finger on an enchanted spindle and sleep for one hundred years. With Tchaikovsky’s music performed LIVE, and choreography by Robert Weiss after Marius Petipa’s
original, this Sleeping Beauty will thrill young and old alike and provide a happy ending to our 20th Anniversary Season!
