Reason #3 for visiting Greater Raleigh during 31 Days of Art:
You’re looking for a special way to celebrate.
Are you celebrating a birthday, anniversary, promotion or other great life event? Why not make a weekend of it and include a performance of Balanchine’s Rubies presented by the Carolina Ballet, part of Greater Raleigh’s 31 Days of Art.
Artistic Director Robert Weiss witnessed the genius of acclaimed contemporary choreographer George Balanchine as he choreographed Rubies live in 1966–an experience that launched his love affair with the ballets of Balanchine. Described as a “totally classical ballet that really incorporated jazz in a seamless manner,” this commemorative show allows the Carolina Ballet’s dancers to sparkle. Also included will be The Steadfast Tin Soldier and Raymonda Variations.
Presented October 10-27 at the A.J. Fletcher Opera Theater at Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts. Shows Thursday through Sunday including weekend matinees, $28-$66. Click here for full details.
