Sat - Sun
Apr 30 - May 01

Not since Founding Artistic Director Robert Weiss created his Swan Lake in 2005 has there been as much anticipation as there is for the premiere of his new ballet based on Shakespeare's Macbeth, one of the Bard's best known dramatic plays. This tale of prophesy, murder, and one couple's lust for power gone awry is choreographed to an original score by J. Mark Scearce, composer of Carolina Ballet's Dracula. Come for the drama and excitement, stay for the beauty and complexity.

Video Screens

Currently, this event has not approved using our video screens. Please feel free to check back closer to the event for updates. If approved, we will post notice here.

For many concert, comedy, and special events at DPAC, we offer added views of the stage with two big screens (size: 16’ x 9’) hung to the sides of the stage or above the stage. These big screens can add to the visual experience of our concert, comedy, and special events and give guests seated farther from the stage what we like to call “a tenth row view”. Approval to use these screens always rests with the visiting show and about half of all concert and comedy events do use these screens.
