Carolina Ballet Presents Messiah
One of the most celebrated oratorios in Western music, George Frideric Handel's Messiah tells the story of Jesus Christ over three parts. Carolina Ballet visually interprets the famed composition using dancing, tableaux, and costumes from Florence, beginning with the baby's birth during "For Unto Us A Child Is Born." Later, the performers infuse their movements with sorrow over the second part's political persecution and crucifixion. For the climax, joyful choreography explodes on the stage for the famous "Hallelujah Chorus," which pays ecstatic homage to the resurrection.
From its humble beginnings in 1984 as an outlet for student performances to its current status as a professional ballet company, the Carolina Ballet has continuously awed audience members with classic pieces such as Carmen, The Nutcracker, and Swan Lake. Artistic director Robert Weiss helms the graceful outfit, often staging his own choreography. Symposium was particularly memorable for its use of “Serenade” by Leonard Bernstein and its finale, in which dancers leapt over lecture podiums.
