JEROME ROBBINS’ FANCY FREE 

Experience Robbins’ legendary Fancy Free set to Bernstein’s score in a historic collaboration between the two creatives. Set in New York in the 1940’s, join three playful sailors as they try to meet women before shipping out to World War II. Fancy Free was the beginning of a lifelong collaboration and friendship for these creative geniuses and is being celebrated around the world for Robbins’ and Bernstein’s 100-year anniversaries.

WORLD PREMIERE: FACSIMILE BY SASHA JANES

Called a “choreographer to watch” by the Washington Post, Resident Choreographer SASHA JANES creates a world premiere. Set to a Leonard Bernstein score, the UNIQUE CHARACTERS of this new, narrative ballet come to life with live accompaniment by the Charlotte Symphony.

Medhi Walerski’s Petite Cérémonie

To round out this exciting triple bill, Artistic Director Hope Muir introduces Charlotte audiences to French choreographer Medhi Walerski’s Petite Cérémonie, which reviewers call a “light-hearted piece full of spunky energy.”
