Charlotte Ballet: Fall Works
Oct 19 - 21 , 2017 • KNIGHT THEATER at Levine Center for the Arts
- Prices start at $25.
Presented by: Greg Ott Center for Physical Therapy & Sports Performance
Fall Works explores the exciting evolution of Charlotte Ballet, starting with a look to what the future holds, with Johan Inger’s Walking Mad. Described as a “stylistic game changer” by Artistic Director Hope Muir, Johan’s choreographic talent was first discovered by contemporary ballet choreographer Jiri Kylian, whose work Charlotte Ballet has performed over the past several seasons. A tribute to Charlotte Ballet’s legacy, Fall Works features George Balanchine’s Apollo, staged by legendary Balanchine dancer and Kennedy Center Honoree Patricia McBride. Elsa Canasta, a dark, funny, sexy evocation of the world of Cole Porter, choreographed by Javier de Frutos, makes an exhilarating finale to the performance. Featuring a collaboration with Charlotte’s Jazz Arts Initiative and performed with a live jazz singer, Elsa Canasta was originally created with Artistic Director Hope Muir and holds a special place in her career.
Elsa Canasta, one of the ballets on the Fall Works program, contains mature themes and is rated PG-13. Elsa Canasta is not included in the Family Matinee performance.
