La Mer

Just as the French Impressionist painters sought to depict the play of light itself, their contemporary, Claude Debussy, sought to evoke the sea in one of his most revered and lasting creations, La Mer. The composer, known as the father musical impressionism, intended the three-part work to stir up primal responses rather than intellectual ones. The music now serves as the basis for Carolina Ballet's latest collaboration with choreographer-in-residence Zalman Raffael. Alternately conjuring the churning of ocean depths and a vast calm, Debussy's "symphonic sketches" should provide a propulsive springboard for Raffael, a young New York-trained dancer whose choreography for last year's The Planets was a highlight of the company's season. —David Klein
