Liam Scarlett, one of the biggest stars in ballet today and sought the world over, returns to Atlanta Ballet to close out the season with a new commission. The Company premiere of his ballet Vespertine in 2017 was an intoxicating powerhouse production that incited audible gasps of delight from the audience. Be among the first to witness the unveiling of his next creation, which is sure to become a tour de force, signature work for Atlanta Ballet, on Friday, May 10th beginning at 8:00 p.m.
Retired Pacific Northwest Ballet soloist Kiyon Gaines will bring the Atlanta premiere of his Sum Stravinsky, an effervescent work that The Boston Globe says, “bubbles constantly with engaging movement and overlapping groupings.”
May will also include the return of Denouement, an original work created on Atlanta Ballet for the 2016-2017 Season by American Ballet Theatre’s Gemma Bond. A transcendent work brought to life by piano and cello accompaniment on stage, Denouement explores the passage of time and how a different choice at a pivotal moment in our lives can set us on a trajectory that we never imagined.
