Playbill Covers from the Archives

As we reflect on the past, we want to share parts of our history from the archives. We found these playbill covers from a few of our first performances as North Carolina Dance Theatre under Artistic Director Robert Lindgren. Pretty groovy, right?

Here’s another throwback – to 1980! We celebrated our 10th anniversary that season, and this is the playbill from our opening night performance. Robert Lindgren was the Artistic Director, and Salvatore Aiello was Associate Artistic Director. If you’ve been a fan of Charlotte Ballet (then North Carolina Dance Theatre), do you recognize any other names from the playbill?

Did you see the news? Tickets for our 50th Anniversary Celebration are on sale now! The performance features works by three choreographers inspired by the Company’s past and looking toward the future. Be part of our history, and join us for the 50th Anniversary Celebration October 7-9, 2021!
