Meet the Players: Michelle Meltzer

In our Macbeth “Meet the Players” series, we’re interviewing the cast of our upcoming production. Get to know all the players you’ll see on stage in our ballet adaptation of ‘The Scottish Play’ March 29, 30 and 31 at the Athenaeum Theatre.

Dancer: Michelle Meltzer

CRB: What roles do you play in Macbeth?

Michelle: “Lady MacDuff, a witch and a sleepwalker in the hand washing scene.”

CRB: Do you have any hobbies outside of dance?

Michelle: “I recently started my own blog and podcast with a great friend of mine called Fuelpointe! It is all about nutrition, regeneration, career paths, and cross-training for dancers. It has become a hobby and passion-project that I can do inaddition to my dancing and teaching Pilates.”

CRB: What are your thoughts on this production of Macbeth?

Michelle: “This contemporary portrayal of Macbeth will be sure to entertain. With visual projections, minimalist stage design, and original costume design. It is sure to be a culmination of art to be admired. “

CRB: Do you have any CRB anecdotes you’d like to share?

Michelle: “In the scene in Macbeth where Banquo is killed by the witches, the witch that kills him stands up and kicks the now-dead Banquo. When this scene was being set, Wade mentioned that the witch should kick him like he was trash. Another dancer and I now have a moment in every run, where at that moment in the scene, we turn to each other and whisper the word "trash" very dramatically. We get a great giggle out of it!”

See Michelle and the rest of this incredible cast of performers on March 29, 30 and 31st at The Athenaeum Theatre. Get your tickets today!
