Fairy Tales at the Winston-Salem Festival Ballet

January 4, 2013

The Winston-Salem Festival Ballet has something in store specifically designed to delight young people and just about anyone else who happens to love a trio of some of the most popular fairy tales of all time (set to the most beloved pieces of Western classical music by an award-winning choreographer and performed by some of our regions most talented dancers).

It’s the return of The Winston-Salem Festival Ballet’s Fairy Tale Series, this year featuring Jack and the Beanstalk, The Three Little Pigs, AND Hansel and Gretel.

Founder and Artistic Director Gary Taylor spoke with David Ford recently about the production.

The ballet is a funded partner of The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County.
