The elegance and sophistication of the art of ballet will be on full display as Charleston Ballet Theatre premiers their latest collection of 20th century masters with the return of their annual Masterpieces of Dance winter production.

This season the ballet pays homage to the master of modern ballet George Balanchine by performing two of the choreographer’s most celebrated works Serenade and the ballet Rubies, the most celebrated section of Balachine’s famed Jewels ballet. Charleston Ballet Theatre is the only ballet company in South Carolina licensed to perform the works of Balanchine, so you know this performance is going to be very special.

We caught wind of this from the Facebook event invitation which can be viewed here.

Tickets are on sale for the February 13th performance for $35 - $45 per person (students $10 off any ticket) and can be purchased by calling The Sottile Theatre box office at (843) 723-7334
