Peter Pan | Charlotte Ballet

March 14th, 2015

I discovered just how much I love ballet in December of last year when I attended my first ballet (The Nutcracker) at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center in uptown Charlotte. It was an amazing experience and ever since that time I’d been looking for another ballet to attend.

It didn’t take long.

As soon as I found out the Charlotte Ballet would be performing Peter Pan @ the Knight Theater, I knew I had to attend. It wasn’t really a hard choice to make. It’s Peter Pan and it’s ballet. What’s not to like?

When we arrived in uptown we found the street in front of our venues for the evening had been blocked off due some early St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. What can I say, Charlotteans love St. Patricks Day.

We took a turn around the park (The Green) next to our dining venue for the evening (Bernardin’s.) I was able to snap a few photos, but it was very windy so I plan to go back when the weather is a bit more hospitable.

When we made it to Bernardin’s we found we had the place to ourselves, for awhile at least. I have to say I like the feeling of having an entire restaurant to yourself. It’s a very relaxing experience.

Bernardins - for those of you who don't know the history. It used to be a flower shop back in the day.

Note to self… Next time just tell them I want the noodles naked. You may not be able to tell from the picture, but they really over did the EVOO.

Time to head across the street to the Knight Theater! We got there kind of early, so we headed upstairs to wait by the door we needed for our seats.

At 6:30p the doors opened and we were shown to our seats. It was our first time attending a show at the Knight Theater and I really like the feel the place has. Not too big, not to small.

I shot a few videos that can be scene on my YouTube Channel. Here’s my favorite.

The show was amazing and I have to say that Peter Pan & Tinkerbell were my favorite’s in this production.

Final bow.

I can’t wait to see another production by the Charlotte Ballet!

    I’m with you on the Ballet. We are seeing The Lyon Opera Ballet’s original spin on Cinderella, in April. Can’t wait.

    Looks wonderful! I’ve only been to a The Nutcracker myself so guess I should venture out. 🙂
