Charlotte Ballet: Wuthering Heights
Apr 27 - 29 , 2017 • KNIGHT THEATER at Levine Center for the Arts
- $25 - $85
Wuthering Heights, Emily Bronte’s literary masterpiece, is a passionate revestory of love and revenge boldly adapted into a ballet by Associate Artistic Director Sasha Janes. Called “king of the pas de deux,” Sasha has a reputation for creating ballets that leave the audience as breathless as the dancers. Wuthering Heights tells the story of the unfortunate lovers Heathcliff and Catherine who, despite a deep affection for one another, are forced to live apart by circumstance and prejudice. With Sasha’s intricate choreography and unique storytelling style, he’ll transport you to the 1800s. Jean-Pierre’s final season comes to an end similar to where he began. Wuthering Heights opens with a performance of contemporary choreographer Alonzo King’s MAP, the first ballet Jean-Pierre commissioned for the company 20 years ago.
