James Whitbourn’s Annelies is the first major choral setting of the diary of Anne Frank, which has inspired millions since it was published in 1947. Premiered in London in 2005, Annelies was praised for its “woundingly beautiful” music and an extraordinary and moving libretto that captures Anne’s keen observations and indomitable spirit. It brings the story to life with echoes of church bells, popular music, and with music from Frank’s Jewish and German heritage.

Carolina Ballet Theatre presents “After Dark: A Thriller Ballet,” set to the music of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” The haunting story of “After Dark” begins on the anniversary of one of the South’s most gruesome crime of passion. Margaret was the beautiful and graceful wife of a wealthy railroad baron, but after years spent battling his infidelity, betrayal, and brutality, it all came crashing to an end. The sinister, but unsolved murders of Margaret and her husband left the town in turmoil and filled with questions. Their home may have been boarded up in 1916, but it never truly closed. The house took on a life of its own, filling with spirits seeking their revenge. Join us on the 100th anniversary of the murders as the spirits prepare for their return.
“After Dark: A Thriller Ballet” is a unique show intended for adults, so come and experience the rush while enjoying haunting melodies inspired by Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” Arrive an hour before the show for The Witching Hour of cocktails and prepare for a thrilling and chilling evening with the Ballet.
