Spring Works features Maria Konrad’s new Bonjour le Monde!, contemporary works by Krista King Doherty and Heather Iler and George Balanchine’s classical Serenade accompanied by Triangle Music Philharmonic.  

The children’s ballet Bonjour le Monde (Hello World) is a world premiere that has many unique French inspirations.  Champs-Eylsee fashion scene, Renoir flowers, picture frames imitating living and breathing artwork, and mimes encasing Le Rose. All of it accompanied by famous French singers from the past and present. 

Award-winning contemporary ensembles by Krista King Doherty and Heather Iler.  'Mechanism' is captivating with its foot stomping formations that fade into soft moments that are seamless and riveting. 'Experience' begins soft and changes to dynamic, syncopated movement that is fresh as a breath of air.   

The classical ballet, Serenade by George Balanchine.  Nearly all professional ballet companies around the world perform his work.  Cary Ballet Company is proud as a youth organization to have been approved by The Balanchine Trust Foundation to perform this monumental piece. To bring this performance to a full artistic circle, the Triangle Music Philharmonic will perform Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings in C, Op. 48 live!! It is a major milestone in Cary Ballet's history to perform Serenade with a live orchestra! This impressive production has something for everyone! We hope you join us!
