While glass slippers are often considered the pinnacle of princessly accessorizing, they were actually invented for a crude beer garden drinking game. See the poster girl for this remarkable footwear daringly don a pair during North Carolina Dance Theatre's rendition of Cinderella. With today's deal, $30 gets you one orchestra-seat ticket (a $60 value) to either the Friday, March 12, or Thursday, March 11, performance. Both shows start at 7:30 p.m. in the newly opened Knight Theater in the heart of downtown.
This interpretation of Cinderella is a three-act ballet performed by more than 60 dancers. World-class costume design combined with elaborate sets transport the audience to a whimsical, imaginative world with a gravitational pull equal to that of the moon. The production takes the original story and infuses it with its own twist, leap, and pirouette to create a dazzling take on a classic, just like a production of Reservoir Dogs starring actual dogs. With a run that originally ended in 2006, this family-friendly favorite is back by popular demand in 2010.
With 3D movies returning to prominence, the original form of dimensional entertainment, real life, is often forgotten. Rediscover the fanciful feeling of live performances with a significant other, an entire extended family, or fellow members of an outdated phone tree. There is no limit on the number of Groupons you can buy, and multiples purchased in the same transaction will guarantee seating together, unlike last Thanksgiving's kids' table debacle.
Due to limited seating, all Groupons purchased after the first 100 will be seated in the mezzanine (also a $60 value).
- The North Carolina Dance Theatre is a company that is loaded with talent. The dancers have solid fundamentals. Their one foot holds were very poised. This level of skill was consistent across the entire company. – Robert Abrams, ExploreDance.com
- You couldn’t ask for better chemistry between the dancers. – Kate Dobbs Ariail, Classical Voice of North America
