A ‘fairytale’ partnership: The Mint Museum and North Carolina Dance Theatre

Continuing the deepening spirit of collaboration across Charlotte’s arts scene, The Mint Museum and North Carolina Dance Theatre are partnering to offer ticket buyers and Mint members special access to two fairytale-themed works.

Any ticket buyer to N.C. Dance Theatre’s run of “Sleeping Beauty” can present a stub or voucher to receive free admission to The Mint Museum on Saturday, March 10 or Saturday, March 17 (a $10 per person value), and see the Mint’s new exhibition Fairytales, Fantasy, & Fear, opening March 3. And any member of The Mint Museum qualifies for a 25 percent discount on tickets to “Sleeping Beauty.”

“As with our previous collaborations with groups including the Charlotte Symphony and Opera Carolina, this partnership offers a chance for Charlotte audiences to see artistic themes explored in many forms,” said Dr. Kathleen V. Jameson, President & CEO of The Mint Museum. “We are thrilled to offer another way to engage the community in the areas of dance and visual art.”

Fairytales, Fantasy, & Fear, which will be on display through July 8 at Mint Museum Uptown, explores the work of Mark Newport, Kako Ueda, and Mattia Biagia and other acclaimed artists and includes such iconic images as Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, superhero costumes, insects, and skeletons. “Sleeping Beauty” tells the tale of
a beautiful princess, a dashing prince, and the triumph of good over evil, set to an unforgettable score by Tchaikovsky.
