Leonce and Lena

Thursday, October 24, 2019
Be a part of the first U.S. audience to experience Leonce and Lena--an atypical dance romance that is Charlotte Ballet's season opener! Christian Spuck of Ballet Zürich brings to life this 19th-century satirical romantic comedy – the tale of betrothed Prince Leonce and Princess Lena, who cast aside convention and both flee on the eve of their wedding only to meet as strangers and fall in love. Described as having “all the skill and wonder of classic ballet, but with a sweet story [and] gothy ambiance,” this highly theatrical production is more “Tim Burton” than “Disney!” We think this will be best enjoyed by adults and children ages 8+.
