Fletcher Opera Theater: March 5–22, 2015

Since being invited to Raleigh to become the Founding Artistic Director of Carolina Ballet in 1997, Robert Weiss has been inspired to create new works to several of the most famous scores in the musical canon – Handel’s Messiah, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Grieg’s Piano Concerto, Bach’s A Musical Offering, and most recently, Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, among others.

This season, Weiss joins forces with Zalman Raffael to bring audiences an evening of innovative new choreography that spans the centuries, set to music specially composed for dance by history’s musical masters, including Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Dvorák and Mozart. This is truly an evening for dance and music lovers alike.
