The Carolina Ballet celebrates its 10th Anniversary with special performances of Carolina Jamboree from June 5-8 at Raleigh Memorial Auditorium at the Progress Center for the Performing Arts. This performance is not your typical ballet, as it combines the talents of the Tony Award-winning NC string band, The Red Clay Ramblers, with Broadway choreographer Lynne Taylor-Corbett. In addition to the performances, an array of notable NC potters will be featured in a free exhibit in the lobby as a part of NC Heritage Weekend, with sales benefiting the Carolina Ballet.

Tickets to the ballet start at $18 and are available here.
