‘Bernstein and Robbins’ an evening of Americana in dance

   RALEIGH  — It’s a melting pot of Americana.
Carolina Ballet’s “An Evening of Bernstein and Robbins,” is being performed now through March 27, 2019, at Fletcher Opera Theater, Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts, 2 E South St.
Beginning the evening of March 8 with a bang, Zalman Raffael’s ‘The Metaphorical Heart” was an exercise in the mesmerizing quality of musicality, showcasing the syncopations and nuances of Leonard Bernstein’s “Piano Trio.” Margaret Severin-Hansen and Richard Krusch wowed with lightning-quick virtuosity, while Jan Burkhard and Sokvannara Sar demonstrated the power of subtlety. Keenan English was also a standout, appearing to fly through the air with crystal clear focus. Each dancer in “Metaphorical Heart” shone in delightful simplicity: with minimalistic costuming and set design, theatergoers could truly appreciate the symbiosis of music and motion.

   Alamance Children’s Theatre will be performing “Meredith Willson’s The Music Man” for the next two weekends at the Paramount Theater, 128 E. Front St., Burlington.
“The Music Man,” directed by Wayne Leonard with musical direction by Tiffany Spaulding and choreography by Alicia Curtis, is a six-time Tony Award-winning musical comedy.
“This profound production is spectacular because of the many passionate people that helped put it together,” said stage manager Rachel Ealy.
The story begins when a smooth-talking con man, Harold Hill (played by Joel Knudson), arrives in the small town of River City, Iowa. His plan is to dupe the town members with his elaborate, self-serving scheme. Regardless of his lack of musical knowledge, he decides to trick the citizens into believing he is a brilliant band leader, then plans to pocket the profits.
