Rising Spotlight: Charlotte Ballet Presents Sleeping Beauty: A Fairy-Tailored Classic


CHARLOTTE, N.C. — One of the world’s most popular classical ballets has been reworked and updated for the 21st century! In the spirit of British pantomime, choreographer Matthew Hart introduces an on-stage Narrator to help guide audiences through this production, which is perfect for first-time ballet-goers. Charlotte Ballet First Company Dancers, Colby Foss, and Nadine Barton join Rising to discuss the differences between this particular version of Sleeping Beauty and the other versions that you may already be familiar with.

Sleeping Beauty: A Fairy-Tailored Classic will make its world premiere in Charlotte on March 13th at the Knight Theater.

Tickets range from $25 – $96 and are available at charlotteballet.org.
