Company Spices Up 85th Season with Audience Favorites and Avant-Garde Premieres

Featuring
Revival of Jean-Christophe Maillot’s Epic Roméo et Juliette
Return of Ohad Naharin’s Minus 16
Premiere of San Francisco Ballet’s Resident Choreographer Yuri Possokhov’s Classical Symphony
Atlanta Ballet Premiere of Swedish Choreographer Alexander Ekman’s Cacti

For its 85th season, Atlanta Ballet (AB) will turn the dial once more on its stout commitment to bring the best in ballet to Atlanta, evident by the 14-15 line-up announced today by artistic director John McFall.

 

Patrons will be introduced to a fresh collection of shining stars in the dance world today, while also being reminded of the works and choreographers they’ve already come to love.

 

Among the returning fan favorites is the sleek, sophisticated Romeo et Juliette by Les Ballet de Monte-Carlo’s Jean-Christophe Maillot – a blockbuster hit with audiences during the Company’s 13-14 season. Atlanta Ballet will also restage the wildly-popular Minus 16 by Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin and the “spellbinding” neoclassical work Seven Sonatas by American Ballet Theatre’s Alexei Ratmansky.

 

To complement the tried-and-true, Atlanta Ballet will present a healthy share of new works, including the long-awaited world premiere of Helen Pickett’s Camino Real, inspired by the Tennessee Williams play of the same name. Other Atlanta Ballet premieres include Classical Symphony by San Francisco Ballet resident choreographer Yuri Possokhov and Cacti by Alexander Ekman.
