Get Lit(erature): Two Famous English Novels Get the Ballet Treatment
Love them or hate them, the ill-fated lovers at the center of Emily Brontë’s masterpiece have loads of dramatic potential, and Charlotte Ballet associate artistic director Sasha Janes’ new take on the novel is sure to draw on its psychological potency. April 27–29. charlotteballet.org.
Pride and Prejudice
Mr. Darcy might not dance if he can help it, but he and the vivacious Elizabeth Bennet—not to mention the colorful cast of characters in Jane Austen’s witty novel—will have excellent reason to do so in American Repertory Ballet’s new production. The ballet features choreography by artistic director Douglas Martin and live accompaniment by the Princeton Symphony Orchestra. April 21–22. americanrepertoryballet.org.
