Carolina Ballet continues the 2022 Spring Season with the World Premiere of Snow White, March 10th-27th! Be sure to get tickets you and the family today 🍎

Below you will find some creative insight behind the making of Snow White from Artistic Director/CEO and choreographer of Snow White, Zalman Raffael:

“Shinji Eshima and I were inspired to create a balletic interpretation of Snow White that would be friendly to children and still invoke thought on the human condition. Our version features the Princess as Radiant as Snow and her friends, the Seven of Them, the Queen and her magic mirror, the Huntsman, and the Prince. The magic mirror symbolizes the mystical element that we all become so enthralled with and is comparable to our relationships with smartphones and technology used today. We especially found it as relevant as it’s ever been to look further at the Queen’s relationship with the magic mirror. The Queen becomes so enamored with beauty and is compelled to consult the magic mirror in an attempt to validate her self-worth. We view the queen as inherently wicked, and I found it curious that we never consider her as a person who was suffering and could not handle the emotions that she struggled with. This view of their relationship in no means excuses the behavior and hideous actions taken by the Queen, but only intends to shed a light on this overlooked aspect that requires forgiveness and understanding from each other. In our ending, the Princess as Radiant as Snow is awoken by the collective energy of love and mourning from all whom cherish her. At the royal wedding the Queen gifts the magic mirror to the Princess to atone for her actions. History goes to repeat itself, but thanks to the growth from her journey the Princess as Radiant as Snow is able to overcome the allure of the magic mirror and banish it.”

Snow White opens in less than two weeks! The legendary fairy tale of Snow White comes to life in Zalman Raffael’s latest creation, complete with new sets and costumes on March 10th 🍎

For this long-awaited balletic interpretation of Snow White, Raffael has collaborated again with the award-winning Shinji Eshima—composer of Carolina Ballet’s emotionally moving Bariolage from September 2019—to create a uniquely different musical score. Be sure to bring the whole family as Raffael’s imaginative new story ballet to Eshima’s innovative music will not disappoint!

About Carolina Ballet

Carolina Ballet is one of America’s premier arts organizations, programming traditional ballets by legendary masters and new works by contemporary choreographers. The Ballet was launched as a professional company in 1998 under the direction of Founding Artistic Director Robert Weiss. In 2019, Zalman Raffael became the Artistic Director/CEO joined by Michele Weathers as Executive Director. For more than 20 years, Carolina Ballet has garnered critical praise from the national and international media, staged over 100 world premiere ballets, and in 2018, chartered the School of Carolina Ballet. Since our inaugural season in 1998 the company has grown from 16 dancers and 5 apprentices dancing 3 programs, to 38 dancers performing 8 programs per season including the magical holiday tradition The Nutcracker.

Carolina Ballet’s vision is to remain one of the top ballet companies in America with national and international recognition, thus contributing to the enhanced reputation and ever-increasing quality of life in our community and the State of North Carolina.

Carolina Ballet’s mission is to perform world-class professional ballet, entertaining and enlightening audiences in Raleigh, the Triangle region, the State of North Carolina, and beyond. We hope to accomplish this mission by attracting, developing, and retaining excellent dancers and artistic personnel combined with a fiscally responsible management and board of directors; commissioning new works by innovative choreographers; presenting traditional ballets of legendary masters; and educating current and future audiences through programs for school-aged children and other performance outreach activities.

In a world premiere program, Carolina Ballet presents a stark clown romance, a tribute to an influential 80s rock star, and a meditation on undercover angels. Read the review by contributor Byron Woods.
