Greenville, S.C. – August 31, 2017–Tickets for Carolina Ballet Theatre’s Snow White The Ballet are now available through the Peace Center. Carolina Ballet Theatre’s Snow White The Ballet is a unique retelling of the classic fairytale. Traditionally, the story portrays the deep envy of the wicked stepmother and the evil that ensues. Carolina Ballet Theatre’s imaginative adaption of the classic favorite beautifully captures both the comedic side of the dwarfs and wicked stepmother and the innocence of Snow White. Snow White the Balletmasterfully conveys the beauty in the fact that true love comes in many formats.
The unique retelling features choreography by the acclaimed Mark Diamond, choreographer for Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux at the Chautauqua Institution and Program Director for Charlotte Ballet II. Diamond has taught and choreographed in Europe, Japan, and the U.S. and has choreographed over twenty ballets for the Charlotte Ballet.
