Directed by Interim Dean of Dance Jared Redick with all-new choreography by faculty member Ilya Kozadayev, the production honors the memorable story while reflecting modern sensibilities. Rosemary Harris, award-winning actor and wife of the late UNCSA founder John Ehle, delivers a brand new narration written for the film, while Guest Conductor Karin Hendrickson leads the UNCSA Symphony Orchestra performing excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s iconic score.
