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.
