With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, many of you lovebirds have romance on the brain. The inevitable question that irks us all is upon us: How to wow that special someone. Charleston Ballet Theatre is here to solve your Valentine’s Day queries with the return of company favorite A Midsummer Night’s Dream. New company member Alexey Kulpin, who hails from Russia, takes on the role of the mischievous sprite Puck. A challenge for many dancers, Puck’s part has Kulpin perfecting difficult leaps and displaying agility that’s stolen hearts in the past. Also on the evening’s playbill is the Charleston debut of George Balanchine’s Allegro Brillante. Set to Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 3, eight company members dance with the precision and energy necessary for the ballet to come alive. The cherry on top will be a revival of 1987’s Poetry With a Splash of Red Blood, the very first ballet CBT Resident Choreographer Jill Eathorne Bahr ever created for the company. Together, this trio of ballets make for a full-length evening.
