Raleigh Memorial Auditorium: May 14–17, 2015
A beautiful orphan. A fairy godmother. A charming prince. No fairy tale touches us like this classic journey of long suffering and grace which are rewarded one night with magic, love, and a fabulous pair of shoes. This performance features an original score by Cary resident Karl Moraski, who accompanies the ballet on the piano.
It has all the elements “for popular success – classic story, colorful scenery, dazzling costumes, attractive music, humor and romance. But its artistic achievement sets it apart: choreography fitted perfectly to each moment and each dancer.”

Paired with this final program of the season is the stage premiere of Zalman Raffael’s Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto, which he created on Carolina Ballet dancers in a studio setting, through a Fellowship from the New York Choreographic Institute.
