The Sleeping Beauty
This enchanting story is about Princess Aurora who is bewitched by the evil Carabosse. The Lilac Fairy intercedes the evil spell and places all in the kingdom into a deep and protective sleep. The spell is finally broken by a kiss from a noble Prince. This ballet is underscored by Tchaikovsky’s brilliant and fluid paced music. Artistic director Carlos Agudelo’s breathtaking direction of new choreography, celebrates the triumph of good over evil and, of course, the power of a kiss.
Whether this is your tenth time experiencing The Nutcracker or your first, this beloved Spartanburg Christmas gift to families, is notably the most recognized ballet in the Upstate. Lavish costumes from the Victorian Era, dancing flowers, falling snowflakes and a little girl’s dream of magical adventures come to life with new choreography each season in concert with the inspiring and beautiful score by Tchaikovsky. Christmas is the season to embrace tradition, family and The Nutcracker.
Compelling visionary voices and tributes to both the classical and contemporary, Década pushes the boundaries of today’s current vocabulary of ballet with an inspiring and eclectic evening of pieces from recognizable ballets such as Swan Lake and Romeo and Juliet juxtaposed to contemporary pieces. This tenth year production of the DanSynergy Series continues Carlos Agudelo’s commitment to collaborating with local musicians, visual and performing artists, filmmakers and writers in order to create new compelling works.
The Great Gatsby
Scott Fitzgerald’s well known novel of a glamorous and frivolous lifestyle, jazz music and dancing, and the complex love between Daisy Buchannan and Jay Gatsby set in the roaring 1920’s, are brought to life in this new ballet with original set design and choreography by Carlos Agudelo. As The Great Gatsby steps into the spotlight, don’t miss the opportunity to see what promises to be one of the most stylish adaptations of this classic literary work.
