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!

WORLD PREMIERE

Washington Irving’s bone-chilling tale, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, recounts Ichabod Crane and his doomed courtship with Katrina Van Tassel. After a party at the Van Tassel home ends in heartbreak, Ichabod heads for home in the dark. As he passes a church the citizens of Sleepy Hollow believe is haunted, he comes “face to face” with the terrifying specter of the Headless Horseman. At daybreak, Ichabod is gone, and the only thing the citizens can find is his tri-corner hat. Co-Artistic Director Zalman Raffael brings this macabre tale to the stage with a new ballet that has the right mix of fright and delight for fans of the supernatural, both young and old.

Serenade has a special place in Carolina Ballet history, having been performed in the company’s inaugural season. Considered a seminal work in the ballet world, it is the first original work choreographed in the United States by George Balanchine, the father of American ballet. Although Balanchine insisted Serenade had no “story,” it is not without drama and emotion. Serenade brings the romantic music of Tchaikovsky to life in a way that is more poetic than narrative. It is a dream full of mysterious imagery, a dance in the moonlight. Since its creation, many have debated its meaning, but once you experience Serenade, there is no denying its significance.

The Sleeping Beauty is one of a trilogy of great Russian ballets, along with Swan Lake and The Nutcracker, choreographed by the great Franco-Russian Ballet Master Marius Petipa with music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. In 2008, Artistic Director Robert Weiss created a new staging of this masterpiece based on the classic choreography of Petipa. The story of Princess Aurora is one of the best-known fairy tales of all time. One fateful day, she pricks a finger on the thorn of an enchanted rose and falls asleep for 100 years. Mr. Weiss’ additions to the ballet include the character of The Raven, a dancing role for the evil Carabosse and a magnificently fearsome dragon that must be slain by the Prince before he can awaken Aurora with his kiss.
