The Carolina Ballet is proud to present Lynne Taylor-Corbett’s brand-new production of “The Little Mermaid.” The dancers have been working on the production on-and-off since July 2010.
Since I have been recovering from my elbow surgery, I have been watching many rehearsals, which has been an enlightening perspective. Although it is fabulous to always be dancing, it is nice to step aside and really understand the steps of the creative process. It has been great following the dancers, the wardrobe staff, and the crew on how everything comes together to make a spectacular show.
As a way of promoting this production, Tim Lytvinenko and I decided to organize an underwater shoot. I knew that the costumes would not be ready in time for a photo shoot. (They are still being fix and it’s opening night!) This was the result of our brainstorming. Five other photographs from the same collection are hanging for the month of March in Chuck’s, a restaurant in Downtown Raleigh.
Carolina Ballet’s “Little Mermaid” production, plus several pas de deux, runs from March 15th to April 1st.
