Jungle Book Ballet Returns

Jungle Book Ballet Returns

Location: Gunter Theatre
Date: March 6th & 7th, 2020

Carolina Ballet Theatre’s Spring Season begins with a unique, adaptation Carolina Ballet Theatre presents, Jungle Book: The Ballet, choreographed and directed by Hernan Justo. This classic tale, based on the short story collection by Rudyard Kippling is given a new and innovative twist, all with Greenville flair.

Families, children, and art patrons alike won’t want to miss this mythical ballet. Discover the journey of Mowgli, a young boy abandoned in the jungles of India only to be discovered by a panther and raised by a pack of wolves.

The ballet follows Mowgli as he grows and sets out on an adventure to the human village, acting as an ambassador for the animals in an attempt to keep the peace between their worlds. On his mission, Mowgli will encounter classic characters like Baloo the Bear and Kaa the Snake.

Much like the animated film, Mowgli encounters the beautiful human girl, Shanti and is instantly smitten. From here on out, Mowgli’s life will change forever. Many years will pass, but Mowgli will never forget his first love. Eventually, he will be called upon to protect his animal family and the jungle he loves by facing off with Shanti’s father and brother who set out to mine gems from a temple controlled by monkey’s. Mowgli, now a man, will be called upon to save his home and make peace between the animal kingdom and the human realm. This mythical ballet transcends the imagination and creates a world of courage, adventure and ultimately, love.
