About the Show

Experience world-class dance with the Nashville Ballet. The Tony Award-winning choreographer behind Steven Spielberg’s 2021 West Side Story, Justin Peck’s Year of the Rabbit will make its Charleston debut. Hailed as “thrilling,” “poetic,” and “brilliant” by  The New York Times, Year of the Rabbit blends the athleticism of classical ballet with boundary-breaking movement for a performance that is both visually stunning and physiologically intriguing. Year of the Rabbit will be accompanied by Artistic Director Emeritus Paul Vasterling’s full-length Firebird, performed to Stravinsky’s iconic score!
