An exuberant start to the season, Fall Works is a double feature including the work of Ohad Naharin, coming to Charlotte Ballet for the first time. Ohad’s Minus 16 has an eclectic score ranging between Dean Martin, mambo, techno and traditional Israeli music. Using improvisation and his signature “Gaga” method, Ohad crafts an experience with elements of spontaneity, while breaking down the barriers between the dancers and audience. Resident Choreographer Dwight Rhoden returns to present his ballet The Groove. Set to 1980s house music, this joyful party ballet is a fitting start to a season of celebration. The Charlotte Ballet's first show of the season is Fall Works October 20-22 at the Knights Theater.
Nutcracker as you’ve never seen it! Thanks to a generous gift from the McColl family in honor of Jane Spratt McColl, Choreographer Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux is collaborating with a world-renowned design team to re-imagine his Nutcracker production with all new sets and costumes. Complete with live music from the Charlotte Symphony, your holidays are made even more special with the magic of Nutcracker! Tickets at charlotteballet.org.
