George Skibine’s Coppelia
Staged by: Thom Clower
Presented by: Carolina Dance Foundation
Carolina Civic Ballet (CDF’s Ballet Performance Company) is thrilled to present George Skibine’s full-length ballet, Coppelia, staged by Thom Clower. Coppelia is a comic ballet that originally premiered in 1870. It tells the story of Franz, a village youth who becomes infatuated with a life-size dancing doll invented by Dr. Coppelius, and sets aside his true heart’s desire, Swanhilda. Come see how this sweet and clever love story unfolds. We are so honored and excited to have special guest performers, including 6 male dancers from Carolina Ballet, with Marcelo Martinez dancing the lead role of Franz and the legendary Thom Clower playing the role of crazy Dr. Coppelius. Please join us for this entertaining and child-friendly production. Tickets on sale March 8th!
Date: Saturday 4/25 7PM & Sunday 4/26 5PM
Location: Green Hope High School, 2500 Carpenter Upchurch Rd, Cary, NC 27519.
The North Star
Written By: Dolly Dozier
Staged By: The Carolina Dance Foundation
For generations, humans have relied on the North Star to guide them home. But it’s a lot of pressure, not to mention lonely, shining brightly in the great big Milky Way. One night, as the Pleiades are preparing to transform into their earthly forms to travel, North decides to hitch a ride on the wing of a dove…
Millions of miles below in Victorian England, Sarah Grace and her mother, Violet, await the return of their father and husband, Captain William Grace, whose ship has been lost at sea since casting off two years prior.
Join North and Captain Grace on their adventurous journeys to make it home for the holidays, because when it’s all said and done, there isn’t anything more important than being home.
This project is funded in part by the City of Raleigh based on recommendations by the Raleigh Arts Commission.
