The spirits are ready to rise again, at The Barnacle, Oct. 17-20, as Center Street Projects shines a light on those from a bygone era who haunt the lands of The Grove. Guests of the 2019 Haunted Ballet will watch as they dance their stories beneath the moonlit sky and try to escape their tragic endings, night after magical night.
Presented in an open walk-thru concept on the grounds of the Historic Barnacle Estate, various dances choreographed by a group of Miami’s most talented artists will be performed throughout the five-acre property built by Commodore Ralph Munroe built here 130 years ago. The dancers will be fictional characters based on the history of Coconut Grove, specifically from the late 1800s and early 1900s.
Guests are encouraged to park nearby and meet at the front gate. Performances begin at 8 and 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 17, 18, and 19; and at 8 p.m. during the single performance on Sunday, Oct. 20.
Cost is $20 per person. Tickets are available immediately prior to each night’s performance at the main gate of The Barnacle Historic State Park; or on Eventbrite.com at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-haunted-ballet-tickets-72398364457
