WCPE Preview! Features Carolina Ballet Choreographer Robert Weiss
The interview will discuss the upcoming Carolina Ballet performance of Cinderella and the world premier of Peter and the Wolf, the music of Karl Moraski and Sergei Prokofiev and the intricacies of expressing Great Classical Music through dance.
The 10th anniversary season of the Carolina Ballet offers the return of Cinderella to the Raleigh stage with its original score by Karl Moraski. As a bonus with each performance, Weiss has included the world-premiere of Peter and the Wolf set to the music of Sergei Prokofiev. The performances will run November 21 through the 25 at the Memorial Auditorium in Raleigh, North Carolina.
"Robert Weiss has created a ballet from Prokofiev's piano score using the dancers, rather than the instruments of the orchestra, to tell the tale of Peter and the Wolf,” says David Ballantyne, host of Rise and Shine and interviewer of Weiss. “At the same time he's using a narrator character to show the audience how a show is put together, right from the bare bones. He's incredibly inventive".
