Aladdin is an original work first performed by DBT in 2009 at the Carolina Theatre in Durham; it was the very first show performed by Durham Ballet Theatre, formerly Legacy Repertory Company. This year, on DBT’s 10th anniversary, it seems only fitting we perform the show that started it all!
Our second year performing Aladdin, 2012, marked the 4th year in a row we performed a full-length ballet in the spring (full list of performances here). That year, and every year subsequent, we were able to provide a free show as a service to the community for special needs children and adults, their families and caregivers. Our third year performing Aladdin, 2015, saw the addition of guest dancers George Sanders and Ruben Suarez, who took on the leading roles of Aladdin and the Evil Brazier. We are so excited to perform our version of this beautiful story for its fourth rotation in our repertoire!
