Beauty and the Beast tells the classic fairy tale of a man cursed to wear the shell of a monster, only to be freed if a woman can see past his physical form to the goodness left inside him. Carolina Ballet’s artistic director, Robert Weiss, reinterprets this tale through graceful choreography and inventive stage effects set to an original score by Karl Moraski. The company’s revival of this story includes songs to help express the action on stage, opening the plot for audiences of all ages so that children can learn how compassion can triumph over fear and how fur is nearly impossible to vacuum out of a dinner jacket. Ending the evening, Robert Weiss directs his world premiere of Beethoven’s Symphony no. 9, inspiring audiences with the piece’s sweeping instrumentation.

Raleigh Memorial Auditorium highlights the elegance of the ballet with features steeped in 80 years of history. Audience members walk into a dramatic atrium lobby with twin floating staircases and Doric columns providing a gothic accent. Inside the theater, mahogany walls amplify the acoustics, and intricate lighting systems aid artistic directors in fully realizing their visions and offering mid-show laser-light shows set to Pink Floyd.

The Carolina Ballet presentation of The Nutcracker was excellent! I enjoyed the beautiful sets and costumes as well as the dancing. It was a Christmas Eve pleasure to attend!
