Interviews & Behind-the-Scenes

Saturday, May 2 @ 7:30 PM

Under the artistic leadership of Charlotte Symphony Music Director Christopher Warren-Green and Charlotte Ballet Artistic Director Hope Muir, this community collaboration was the first co-creation between the Ballet and the Symphony since the 1990s. In a re-imagined presentation of Igor Stravinksky’s The Rite of Spring, the performance connected the orchestra and professional choreography with students from Charlotte Ballet’s Reach program in an unprecedented community partnership.

Choreographer Peter Chu described his work as being driven by themes of togetherness during the creative process. The result was a performance encompassing the “power of moving together as a group, as a whole, to create greatness,” said Chu.

Some of Charlotte Ballet’s dearest friends have created THE RESILIENCE FUND—a new $1 million campaign to help cover our losses during this time of crisis. Learn more and help sustain our artists and organization.
